Alpo 3000: CrankyAndi: Alpo 3000: I thought of this weeks ago and just got around to making it. Working full time and going to school full time so spare time doesn't exist.

I lurk here but rarely post - thanks to all you Farkers for restoring my faith in humanity on a weekly basis!

Wow, that was neat. I've got the bedroom window open for some fresh air because it's just lovely outside, and perked up because the wind shifted, bringing a fresh, clean smell with it. It's now raining (well, sprinkling), and it smells SO NICE. It's been a dry winter and we haven't had much precipitation at all. BWAHAHAHA! Sonny just trilled at me and when I went to scratch his ears I noticed that he's slightly damp. He must've come dashing back in! Now he wants lap time. D'awwww. :)

Now he's giving me dirty looks because I'm typing and not petting. Also, I'm hearing people across the street at the lake packing up and chasing down windblown objects. ...I should probably close the window soon...

This one hacked up another ginormous hairball two days ago. We've noticed that he seems to be a bit of a compulsive groomer. Not crazy compulsive but he spends a great deal of time cleaning himself. We may need to address this if he continues yakking up giant hairballs.

On the advice of a co-worker who's cat has the same problem (and some Googling) we started giving him around a teaspoon of Gerber squash baby food (#1) twice a week. He LOVES it!

We'll see how that works and take it from there...He may just end up shaved bald if this keeps up.

Neither have we, which is scary. I heard we were something like 2% of normal precipitation this year. Cali already catches on fire every summer (well, parts of it), but worse yet, SoCal is a farking desert. When I moved up to NorCal from my homeland in the depths of Cali (Los Angeles county, born, raised and praised) I was amazed at how ... green and wet it was. Also, because we're river sippers here, my water didn't smell like chlorine! The water in SoCal you could smell from 20 paces. You were pretty misguided if you thought you were to drink it instead of get delivery water from Sparkles or someplace like that. Now I get snarly just thinking about how much water we send down there. Before I moved up here, I took it for granted if I wasn't looking at the water bill. Now that I know where it comes from, well, RAIN DAMMIT!!! The whole southern part of the state is going to bleed us dry of water! http://womansdayfriends.proboards.com/index.cgi

Um..ecosystem peeps..besides we are several feet below normal, and LK Michigan is approaching historic lows. Not good for tourism or the fish. Now watch, it will rain the whole time we are on vacation this summer.

When I visited some relatives in the LA area some years back I experienced the opposite. Yes, it's nice and warm down there year-round, but yikes, everything looked so dry. :( Also, when I was at Ft. Hunter Liggett a few years back (east of Monterey) I got some really nifty photos of the forests north of post catching fire. It played merry hell with all of the units conducting exercises there; we had damn near a dozen cases of respiratory problems at the med clinic every day for the duration of the fire.

Also, because we're river sippers here, my water didn't smell like chlorine! The water in SoCal you could smell from 20 paces.

And since the Central Valley is a MAJOR agricultural area and produces a massive amount (and variety!) of foods one would think that it's counterproductive. One of the biggest reasons that I love living here is the amazing amount of fresh produce we get year-round. Mmmmm, California strawberries...

Desert kitty! I love the upper-arm banding. I would hug him and pet him and bleed profusely because he's a wild animal and I got clawed. :D

And poo, I heard thunder a bit ago but nothing since, and the rain has tapered off. My car was already dirty, and this was juuuust enough rain to turn it into gunk without actually rinsing it off. *Rageface.*

We've been piping our water down south for as long as I've been alive and I'm pushing .... well, let's just say I've been turning 21 for a couple decades now.... and at one point, an entire lake nearly disappeared. Every time I go to SoCal to visit friends or just hit Disneyland and I see a nice, green lawn, my eye starts to twitch. A lot. Many of us up here have drought resistant landscaping and they've got LAWNS?

I do remember a couple times my water bill down there was the same as, or slightly more than, my rent. I guess if they can afford it, they can water their tiny lawn. Up here I have a huge back yard and about half of it is lawn. The other half - drought resistant landscaping/wild native thangs.

I just realized that the crappy weather back east and our warm, dry winter - this has GOT to be a La Niña year. You'd think after all these years in Cali I'd know that by now. So hopefully, we'll be back to normal rainfall next winter, even though it will keep us a few years to catch up. Then we'll have an El Niño year and flooding. Welcome to California, I guess.

I hear ya about shipping your water out of state. That would annoy us even more. I'm pretty sure we already send water to Las Vegas, though I know they also use grey water or whatever reclaimed/recycled water is called for their fountains. We just can't afford it this year, though. I wanna bust out some pool toys and have there be actual water in the pool!

Heh. Cool pool, man.

No kidding! Japan gets most of their rice from us, even. Since I'm not too terribly far from where so much of it is grown outside of SacTown (though I'm the opposite side of Sac from the rice paddies) I am fully aware how much water that takes. I'm also thinking I need some goats. Ever since the CalEPA put the kibosh on burning so much rice stubble, every time I go over the causeway (or whatever the term for it is) that time of year, I see goats munching it all down. Apparently the owners rent them out to the rice growers!

What a goat may look like:
www.dairygoatjournal.com
How could anyone NOT want one of those? So cute! Plus, goat cheese!

Oh, and I agree about the desert cats! Too cute! I wonder if they keep them as pets anywhere (Israel, maybe? I think they're from that area) or if they're endangered so they'd save the cat and draw and quarter you if you tried. I'm going to look that up later (if I remember).

I think you're right. I've spent the past five years running all over the damn country and I've completely lost track of our weather cycles here. Hunh, and after skimming a wiki it doesn't seem to follow any pattern. I remember getting something like five or six rainy winters followed by one or two dry ones when I was growing up, and I've been here 20+ years. Cool chart at the bottom, fits with what I remember, so at least THAT part of my memory isn't totally hosed. Hey, I know why it's been so dry here! I can't remember the last time that I washed my car! Quickly, break out the garden hoses and sponges, we've got a couldburst to summon!

RWDA they were trying out sheep here to " Mow" the hard to get to areas along the shoreway. Some very steep, former shorelines..I think they were a success. I guess we will see if they appear again!

Yum. Rice. I like it with a bit of Shiso on it..or buttered. Drool! :) I have a wild rice cookbook frm Colonial Michillimacinac, I need to find some "fresher" rice than what I have..think discovered in the corner of the freezer...:) and finally..strawberry Rhubarb freezer jam.

I think they show up every 4 or 5 years, so it's about time. It was raining in May last year, but only one storm of note. We weren't in drought conditions, either. I hope I'm wrong about a visit from our infamous girl child, but if I'm right, we're going to be really unhappy this summer. I much prefer her naughty brother's effects on the weather. Then again, I don't live on a hill overlooking the Pacific, so I don't have to worry about my house sliding into the ocean when it rains.

Herbivores are awesome for fire control just because they do eat all the scrub brush. We've used them in various parts of Cali for that for years now. I think we need to get more goats to prepare for an extra dry summer.

I want my rice, too! We eat a lot of it here, I just tend to do the CalMex food thing with it. My son makes sushi rolls with it. It's such a versatile thing, I've always got it on hand.

Holy moley! I've never seen a plant like that here. Looks dangerous. I'm going to guess we don't have 'em here or the gangbangers would be hawking them as weapons along with the rpg launchers and full autos.

We may have them and I just don't know about 'em. I'm not exactly a rural type person.

Fiona went to look at them but she did not get too close.
As evening came they all started mooing and walking to the far corner of the field, one of the cows looked a lot like a donkey. They sounded so peaceful, I can't wait to get the house finished so I can listen to them and see the stars away from the city lights every night.
