California Reservoirs Are Full For The First Time In Five Years

California and other Western states are still licking their wounds from the devastating drought that brought farmers, businesses, and individuals to their knees begging for rain. But the rain didn’t come until the last year. California’s Governor Jerry Brown didn’t waste time when he put a mandatory limit on the amount of water people could use. And he didn’t flinch much when he saw the reservoirs in California empty like a kitchen sink. But all the nightmares associated with the drought are history now. California reservoirs are full, so Brown and his state are heading into winter in better shape than they been since 2011, in terms of water wealth. The nine-mile-long San Luis Reservoir in the Central Valley is 86 percent full. A year ago the San Luis Reservoir wasn’t even half-full.
Last winter’s fierce storms gave Governor Brown the green light to call off the mandatory rationing of water. And thanks to weather reports, California can calm down because 45 of the California reservoirs are almost full. Snow is back in the mountains in September and October this year. Snowfall was missing in action for more than four years, but the water is back in the mountains, and that means California farmers may have a good season for a change.
The weather folks don’t know if California will get the amount of rain the state needs to function, economically speaking. And the weather people can only accurately predict what’s going to happen weather-wise a week out, or ten days out if the satellites, supercomputers, temperature sensors, and radar are doing what they are designed to do. The National Weather Service doesn’t use a crystal ball to predict weather patterns, so weather patterns don’t act or react the way weather-forecasters say they will.
The weather seems to be its own special type of consciousness because it reacts to the planet’s requests. The oceans play an important role in developing weather patterns, but scientists still don’t fully understand how to harness ocean energy so it does more good than harm. Humans are opening scientific doors, and they are discovering new data. That data is changing the way life functions on the planet. But when it comes to understanding the intricate conscious mechanisms that produce drought, floods, and severe storms, the experts are still in the dark ages. Rising sea levels, carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and the melting ice have an effect on the weather. Weather scientists are trying to keep up with mother nature’s finicky movement’s, but so far mother nature is winning that race.
