California's population has doubled since the early 70s yet the reservoirs still look about the same during drought years. Not a very good fact to confront the climate change alarmists with.



I recall the late 70's water shortage. They closed one lane on the Golden Gate Bridge and laid a large water main across to bring water to SF from Petaluma. You also had to pay or beg for a glass of water at a restaurant and restrooms were closed at gas stations. Otherwise, we all did just as normal.

Can't imagine. Grew up where cool clear water was practically in every draw. It has been ever since too. Weather is sure nice down there though.

Hadn't heard of that before, thanks for sharing.

And a whole bunch if the phuggers who create the demand for those
lakes, and draw from them, want to tell me about the environment.


He'll, they are the same nitwits wanting to remove dams all over the place.
Darn shame we couldn't make them live with their wants and desires,

Believe so, between Idaho and Jackson on US26? Not really conducive to picture taking for me! Dandy country.

A drought is an emergency. A public water supply is public. Even an aquifer or running stream is publicly owned. I do believe filling a 20,000 gallon pool should be illegal in a water emergency. Perhaps water should be rationed to 1,000 gallons a month per person in the household and you do with it as you wish. When I was a kid we lived in northern Utah for 5 years. There were 2 acre lawns kept in lush grass all summer in that desert. 1 inch of water on an acre is well over 20,000 gallons and that was kept up all summer. My elderly cousin that lived in Borger Texas had sprinklers installed and was constantly running Lake Meredith water on his grass and then paying a man to cut it every week. Doesn't make sense to me but we have rain here.

Yessiree. It's one of the few places in the region where fall colors can be seen, supposedly because of a species of maple that's prevalent. My wife loved it.

My lawn water comes from the Missouri river.


I'm just trying to help keep the oceans from rising and swallowing up shoreline.

It's a fine shortcut, potatoes to Georgia and potatoes to Pennsylvania so far! Saw a bear cub cross the hwy coming up towards the dam a couple months ago. Pretty good drive compared to many other places. Slow going. Someday I hope to time it right and park overnight at the dam. Appreciate the info.

Mud Lake sounds dandy compared to the Philadelphia Produce Market!

Parked outside of there for 34 hours, then wheeled in at 0630 this morning and they wanted me to pay a $35 entrance fee! Figuring the guy is scamming me, I ever so politely declined. LOL Then saw the signs, guess it was legit! Only 5 hours later and I was unloaded and rolling! Didn't make it 30 miles as the next load, nearby in NJ, took 6+ hours!

So, yes, fond memories of trees, rocks and rivers!

L. Oroville has a bunch of coho salmon. Not to mention trophy bass. Cats, trout, kokanee, they're all bunched up.

I won't fish for them. C'mon rain.
