2015 - Winter - Quakes, Cold, Moisture
While it is supposed to be winter time, and we have already seen sub-zero temps, the amount of moisture we have seen so far needs to increase if the drought is to be erased. Earthquakes in NW Nevada are continuing, as you can see below:
If you have been watching our Weather Station's page, since Sept. 1, 2014, we have had 14.5 inches of rain and yes that was all rain. A bit of snow has fallen though nothing like in years past, but winter is still here and the next storm could bury us.
An interesting thing to note is the number of web sites talking about sea level rise, some with goofy maps. Years ago, we included a website that you could manipulate based on whatever sea level rise the "experts" were predicting by the year 2100. For those folks who forget that 1 meter = 3.280839895 feet (to be exact), you too can figure out what your exact location will look like based on whatever meters you manipulate the graphic to. If you happen to already live there, might consider moving now.
To remind folks, here are the fire sites to watch: active fires & fire warnings for the entire USA.
Need To Buy Something?
Buy products made in your country, not China. If you want to get your country back to work, you have to buy products made by your fellow citizens.
Reduce your monthly cooling bills by replacing your home's roof with white-colored material, use native plants for your landscaping instead of lawns, remove all Juniper plants (they swallow more water than you can imagine), and if you must have a green lawn (for children or pets) use an artificial material.
Go "green" by using more Metals, which may be reused easily while Plastics requires special types of equipment to process. Only buy products your area can recycle. Read labels, make a difference.
