The gas prices are still high.

Cut the gas with water. :-)

every morning I wake up and drain my pool into the street then go to work.

when I come home at night I put the water back into the pool.

i have been doing this for 7 yrs now with only 4 holidays per year.

I always felt a little guilty about this behavior, but not now.

gotta flush a few times now. gotta go.

Yay, does this mean we're done stealing water from other states and Mexico?
 
2004-03-20 05:50:05 PM  
bolax - nope.
We still need their electricity.
Or is it natural gas?
Whatever, I'm sure we'll find some reason to invade.
 
2004-03-20 05:51:57 PM  
If we've got so much water here, why is my water bill going up? I heard something on the radio saying that it is planned to increase this year, and next year. wtf???

zagadka Yay, does this mean we're done stealing water from other states and Mexico?

Nope, down south in this neck of the woods, we're still in the middle of a drought (like always). We'll still be stealing water and having major brushfires, as usual.

Cali will find a way to fark this up, so don't worry.

/btw people still die of the plague in California, just to warn ya : )

Now I can fill my pool, turn on all my sprinklers and hose down my SUV for an hour.

Enough water=too much water. Farkin stop watering your grass, Californians.
 
2004-03-20 06:46:41 PM  
It's a great year to be a plant. Or a tree. Or a waterfall, lake or stream. The water content of California's mountain snowpack was measured at 123 percent of normal for March, 150 percent of normal north of Redding in the Shasta-Siskiyous and Trinity Alps ranges.

Bush freaks out and orders new legislation to stop this disturbing trend. Pisses in local water hole to get things started and calls it the "clean water act"
 
2004-03-20 06:52:41 PM  
Good. Does that mean they're gonna quit moving up here to Oregon and pissing us off?
 
2004-03-20 06:53:48 PM  
This good news does not mean sufficient water for California, but it may slow the movement to conserve, according to the law of unexpected outcomes.
 
2004-03-20 07:02:18 PM  
Headline should read:

Northern California finally has enough water. SoCal still swiping from AZ and the Lower Basin.

i'm in los angeles today: it smells like an airport runway. jet fuel stenches
in the cabin and lights flickering at random.

i'm in los angeles today: garbage cans comprise the medians of freeways always
creaping even when the population's sleeping.

and i can't see why you'd want to live here.

i'm in los angeles today: asked a gas station employee if he ever had trouble
breathing and he said "it varies from season to season, kid."

it's where our best are on display: motion picture actors' houses maps are never
ever current so save your film and $15.

and i can't see why you'd want to live here.
billboards reach past the tallest buildings,
"we are not perfect but we sure try."
as UV rays "degradate" our youth with time.

the vessel keeps pumping us through this entropic place in the belly of the
beast that is californ-i-a, i drank from a faucet and i kept my receipts for
when the weigh me on my way out (here nothing is free).
the greyhounds keep coming dumping locusts into the street until the gutters
overflow and los angeles thinks, "i might explode someday soon."

it's a lovely summer's day and i can almost see a skyline through a thickening
shroud of egos. (is this the city of angeles or demons?)
here the names are what remain: stars encapsulate the gold lame and they need
constant cleaning for when the tourists begin salivating.

you can't swim in a town this shallow - you will most assuredly drown tomorrow.

the quickest way to solve all of californias water is to drop it all into the sea the whole damn mess, let the pacific take care of it i say, and ill vote for any prez. candidate who features that on their ticket
 
2004-03-20 07:36:40 PM  
what about electricity?
 
2004-03-20 08:11:56 PM  
Hey, California, quit hogging up all the water!

/Lives in a drought area further east... where the bed of a major river is still showing through in places.

and i can't see why you'd want to live here.

Because the Pacific Northwest is full of smug Cali-bashing boors like Death Cab for Cutie and Quail64.
 
2004-03-20 09:00:10 PM  
California is mostly made up of people from elsewhere (and a bunch of us friendly 3rd generation natives, outnumbered....), but Oregon, Washington, etc. are being invaded by "Californians."

We're sort of a stucco Ellis Island, where incomers learn to live large, buy low, sell high and migrate out of state to biatch about the coffee, wine, or whatever, and make California seem dumber than it really is.
 
2004-03-20 09:35:02 PM  
Awww Damn...

I was expecting that they had domed over Disneyland and were putting all of the icebergs they towed down from Alaska there. The icebergs could serve a dual purpose, supply fresh water as they melt and keep Walt's body frozen.
 
2004-03-20 11:29:02 PM  
Yeah, what Quail64 said. It's hell on earth here. Save yourselves. If you're on your way, turn back now. And spread the word. Everyone stay the hell away. Especially idiots who use the term "Cali".

/in a pissy mood tonight
 
2004-03-21 09:56:43 AM  
Yup--they're right. The Golden State is a hellhole. Please stop moving here.
 
2004-03-21 03:36:33 PM  
Yeay for Feather Falls and Lake Oroville... located in the white trash capitol of California.

/lives in Oroville

The description of Feather Falls is pretty... lame. It really is quite nice though, only topped by Yosemite Falls in CA. Good for getting a little private time if that's what is desired.

Not a chance.  We move up to Oregon simply to piss you people off.  We get a twisted pleasure from it.

Yup it has. I can guarantee you the snowpack in the far northern reaches of CA (north of redding, east and west) is nowhere close to even 60% Let alone 100+. There's maybe 2 feet of snow at 7000 feet when there should be 12 or better. Water content doesn't mean shiat when it'll all be gone by the end of April. Enjoy your lawns while you still got 'em SoCal.
