Water Water Everywhere
Still raining here in the Pacific Northwest. We are only 4 and a half months into the new year and we have had 6 record rainfall events.
It just doesn't want to stop. Getting crops in the ground was a challenge this year as we had to work in between storm systems, sometimes in raincoats. We sowed directly into the ground most everything, except for some tomatoes and green beans we sprouted under a grow light.
Had to get as much in as I could because I will be laid up for a few weeks due to a knee replacement surgery scheduled tomorrow. I had the right one done last October and it is just now getting back to full usefulness. Good timing though as I usually just sit around and watch the stuff grow this time of the season anyway.
I know a lot of folks are having the opposite problem with not enough water. California is in acute drought and has been for years now. I'm beginning to wonder if they will start having water "brownouts" like they do electricity.
Just what they need, on top of $6 a gallon gas. Then throw in food prices that are soaring and no baby food formula, and the smell of revolution wafts through the air!
Well, maybe not revolution. But a few busted windows fer sure.
I don't know, how much worse would it have to get before people start gathering in the streets and public squares?
What are your thoughts? The thread is open.
