If it is proportionate to the fire season then catastrophe awaits.
Crown fires do more than damage the foliage above ground. Crown fires kill root systems down as far as a foot. So they literally clean out everything. I've seen root fires that last several years from fires like this.
Its going to be a very ugly wet season.
With the biggest mess in California's recorded history and a place where class action lawsuits are common this could get epic.
Who do you sue concerning a sustained drought?
Correct.....drought has been occurring continuously out there since the beginning of time. That would be a whole lot of folks to sue!!
Those dinosaurs, driving hummers, are kind are hard to find...
The really worrisome question is whether dams, aqueducts, pipelines and freeways will be taken out.
Considering the states lack of money and infrastructure spending on these critical things over the last 20-30 years and the state of disrepair they are in, this is a very real worry.. They only have their democrat fools they elected to blame.. in other words, THEMSELVES to blame...
The weight shifts will also trigger quakes as China has proven with its dam building of the last 50 or so years and mudslides/avalanches will shift weight setting off a self dampening but frightening cycle for a while after the rains stop.
We will remain in a La Niña pattern for the foreseeable future. If this pattern persists into next year the drought will continue. Considering the history of mega droughts in that region lasting 30-60 years it could be a long time before major water hits the region.
