Good morning, Ello people!
While 50% of the U.S.A. is under many feet of snow, we in California are just grateful to get any form of moisture.
Today is one of those days.
Food for thought: If we can build an oil pipeline from the north to the south of our wonderful country, why couldn't we build a water pipeline from the east to the west of our country?
Although water, at this point, doesn't make as much money as oil, the fact is this: Without water, we wouldn't have the afforable variety of foods that we grow so well in California (and in the west). Imagine paying $10 for an orange. Or $30 a pound for almonds?
Wouldn't you think that sharing our water supply could benefit our country (and the world) to continue to produce food?
I'm probably way off target. But we, in the western U.S. are always envious of the midwest and east coast when they receive record amounts of precipitation and the excess goes out to sea or the gulf (thus causing floods and wreaking other types of havoc). I acknowledge that Mother Nature needs to flush out rivers annually. But the excess water does create some circumstances that, in my opinion, shouldn't happen.
In any event, please pray that the west coast (and specifically, California), receives just as much rain and snow this season as the rest of the continent!
