No one here can't cope with anything. At least no one who matters.

Welp time to run all the faucets again all day every day.   Also I think my driveway needs to be watered for 87 hours strait.

I moved to the Bay area the day a seven-year drought ended.  Pushed a dead* motorcycle from the U-Haul to my hotel in the rain.  Rained almost every day for the next three months.

*Just a dead battery fortunately.

Isn't this now more of an abnormal condition?

But I can't cope with the Oakland stroke.

Cool, that means the kindling will grow vigorously this year and spend the next decade of drought drying until it ignites into a humongous conflagration.

Just kidding, it will probably happen by the end of summer!

Great!  Can't wait for the water rates to go down now.
/Why are you laughing??

No kidding, I've never seen so much winter brush growth here in SoCal. Even places that burned last year are thick with brush. The fires will be spectacular.

We never worry if it crumbles and breaks.

Good.  Now it's definitely time to never address water table shortage issues again.  Finally glad this is over. Once and for all!

Time to go back a tweak those climate change computer models now that California is no longer going to dry up and blow away into the Pacific and just wash away now.
