Make a damned decision ya wusses

Sheesh. First you complain about not having any water, now you complain about having that water. When will you Californians ever learn?

Yeah, all we've heard is "We need it! It better rain soon or we're going to die!", along with laughter at the rest of the country, because we're getting polar vortex'ed over and over again.  Don't look for sympathy from the rest of us, you wankers.

If this involves both California and water, then shouldn't it be on the POLITICS tab ??

How long can you tread water?

I swear, first it's grinding drought, now it's mudslide-inducing downpours. These Californians would biatch if they were hung with a golden rope!

Wow. When Hollywood pushes out a marketing campaign they don't mess around.
 
2014-02-28 09:22:16 AM
Cubit = length from elbow to tip of middle finger.  Obviously YMMV, so it's an archaic, inexact measurement but it does allow the carpenter to flip the bird at whoever is giving such ludicrous instructions.
 
2014-02-28 09:24:40 AM
Oh pish. Be glad it's rain. Since an inch of rain equals 10 inches of snow, give or take, that shiat would be horrifying in half the country right now, and we're supposed to get pounded again Sunday (give or take).

Cry me a river.

On second thought, don't do that.

/flooding
 
2014-02-28 09:24:46 AM
Thirst, crop failures, dying stock, shortages, wildfires, OYG it's the End of the World!

Add three inches of rain.

Floods, mudslides, crops washed away, drownings, OYG it's the End of the World!

Instead of getting hysterical about every change in the weather we could design and implement some basic water management. I am insane, yes. That's why I don't live in SoCal.

Well, it seems we can stop diverting water from the Colorado river to SoCal now.

I wish the weather pattern could shift. One inch of rain generally converts to about 10 inches of snow. That would really shut them up.

If California were a gender, it would be a woman... get what you asked for, and still not satisfied.

Dr Jack Badofsky: Well, it seems we can stop diverting water from the Colorado river to SoCal now.


We're not even close to that point.  The reservoirs across the state are so far below their normal levels that this latest storm is only bringing about 1% of the rain we actually need.

/Californian
//not complaining about the rain
 
2014-02-28 09:32:33 AM
The only people complaining are those living on the sides and at the bottoms of hillside burn areas and those living in areas with ancient infrastructure that's insufficient to drain the streets and such. The vast majority of us are more than okay with the rain we're getting.  However, "Something is happening and most folks are not complaining about it." Makes for boring news.

You mean it's snowing? it's called winter.
 
2014-02-28 09:34:00 AM
The damage in some cases has already been done.  Cattle has been sold off too early, orchards have been ripped out of the ground, people are starving, cats and dogs are living together, we're all going to die....or pay more for almonds this summer maybe both.

Dear California,

I know things suck right now, but you have prospered so much in the past and laughed at the rest of us while you used water that comes from my state.

Please, stay where you are and suffer and whatever you do, please do not let any more of your citizens move here.

Sincerely,
The rest of the US

Yeah, I've noticed that, here in Chicago, they're working more and more cute weatherwomen into the mix.  Those without tight bodies need not apply.

Yes, thanks for that.  By the way, we're going to take more and there's nothing you can do about it so....thanks in advance.  I'd stay and chat but it looks like the rain is letting up a little some I'm gonna run outside and fire up the sprinklers for a bit.

Am I the only one here sick and tired of almonds?
In everything theses days.
Seem to outweigh even the peanuts in my mixed nuts.
And I'm fussy about my nuts.

Kinda like acetaminophen in my oxy, just don't need  it.
