The rain just keeps on coming. Folk are being evacuated over in Flintridge for fear of mudslides.
I paid my water bill yesterday and I asked the gentleman there if the Los Angeles County Waterworks harvest rain water. He didn’t know. He didn’t ‘think’ so. He said, after some thought, “No, we don’t harvest the rain water.”
During the worst of yesterday’s storm the trees were bent double, the rain was smacking into the house horizontally and a waterfall pounded under the drive. Perfectly normal, I might add, for Whitstable but noteworthy for Malibu.
One storm after another smashes into Southern California and will continue to do so until Friday. After the storms pass we will have a few days of glistening palm trees and clean air affording views for miles around then the black LA dust will start building up over everything all over again.
I am guessing that this winter will be very wet. Very, very wet.
Anyhow, the Democrats lost Massatusetts. It didn’t come as any great surprise. I imagine that it suits the White House as they now have a really good excuse not to do anything other than maintain the Bush status quo. Obama will have an even better excuse after the midterms when the Dems lose both houses to the Republicans and the arguments get easier. I am surprised we don’t all just start talking about terrorists again. It’s so much easier than discussing healthcare or equality for the gays.
Today Obama is ‘all up in my grill’ screaming at the banks-more hollow words from a president who sucks on the cock of the banking/insurance industries.
The problem with New Agers is that they don’t get back quickly enough. I am still waiting for the goat shelter to be built-so I can buy the goats. I am still waiting for the fencing man to get back to me and the gardeners with their plan. The only people who get back in a timely fashion are the solar guys who all want to sell $40k solar systems.
Sometimes I have a waking nightmare that by buying goats and chickens and creating a kitchen garden there is something oddly Michael Jackson about me. It was just a fleeting thought..
