    I remember in early September a buncha years ago from the news, the Broncos played in the mid 90s on a Sunday and the Rockies got snowed out on the very next Monday. Crazy weather on the plains !!

    That seems a bit wasteful, just put an ice pack on it. Problem solved. I should have been an engineer guy.

    They should solve the problem by expanding the ground water pumping program that they have to irrigate the artificial farmland and build some more culverts to carry any remaining rainwater out to the ocean. Heaven forbid it soaks down into the ground!

    If they can kill every last thing on the hills, this will be the last time there will be a fire cause then nothing will grow back which will just die and end up burning later.

    Maybe they can just pave it all... hmmm....

    California desertification, let us see what google says...

    Nature is actually pretty tenacious and things do grow back quite quickly! I witnessed this first hand when we had the wildfire in 2014 which led to our mandatory evacuation for a few days. The hill up the road about a couple of miles away was charred back after the fires were controlled and extinguished. I remember driving up and down Twin Oaks Valley Rd thinking to myself that the landscape looked eerily apocalyptic. In the following season and two we had lots of rainfall and then it all grew back fresh and new. Sometimes I think that it must have all been a dream!

    This anecdote reminds me of the Chernobyl disaster (of course my wildfire story is no where calamitous in scale) when they were predicting total desolateness and bleakness for many centuries to come and now mere decades later on there are reportedly deers and wolves, among other wildlife, running amok in that area!

    A buddy of mine is helping me put in some drywall for part of the kitchen refinish... took off a cabinet and well well well. Looks like a previous contractor/ owner felt like trying to find the stud the fun way.
