I think that this will have a direct effect on the water conservation acts as well as the agenda to make "all" water salable just like oil in the last
Take a close look at your local authorities and their suggestions for 'conservation' in the coming weeks as this will be the first indication of
something going down.
Of course for continuity of Government they will do it in such a way that people will accept is as the 'best advice' from the local professionals
dealing in anything from agriculture to watering your lawns and summer gardens.
Since we did not have the snowfall this year many of the water tables are going to become dangerously low for both human and wildlife across the
entire nation and the areas which have already seen the migration of natural waterways due to the beginning of what could become the greatest dust
bowl in US history know what I am saying.
There are measures which can be taken at this time to prepare yourself and your family for extreme heat and water 'blackouts' especially in the larger
I have a thread around here somewhere I will try to dredge up and add to from what I have learned by the very people who have survived past

can come our way if what we have all encountered already this year.
Seems no matter who you talk to and from which continent, everyone 'knows' and yet continues on as best they can. This is human nature, but remember
that power can and will be shut off when it is most needed.
Some have said in this thread that from what we know about the warming gulf stream, the severe weather anomalies, that this could become a history
making year from tornadoes, hurricanes, brush and wildfires, lightning strikes, hail and prevailing straight line winds in excess of the past norms to
name just a few of the possibilities we all face globally. I agree.
Any of those tragic and serious events listed above can and will cause services to be interrupted if only locally, but we also need to understand the
potential of Statewide and even Nationwide events happening simultaneously.
As I look and sense into the weather this spring and what is to come, all I can do is put one foot in front of the other each day to create a more
self sufficient and independent lifestyle for me and my family and then hope for the best.
