Yes, after I have given that more thought, I realize now the fragility of systems. Perhaps some management could create enough to spare without detriment to the native areas. The issue can cause some social upheaval, probably as a result of unfair distribution due to big money steering the flow.
As far as Texas and other coastal states, I hope desalinization efforts are able to take up the slack at some point,

4/17/2012, headline on 'rantburg' "Himalayan glaciers are thickening, and advancing" this information from some satellite or other, cannot remember which, also in an other blog, Emperor penguins double what they thought there were (just like the polar bears!)

I'm in Colorado against the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and I'm a little concerned myself about the weather. Now don't get me wrong, I am absolutely loving the fact that we got spring when the calendar said we were supposed to have spring. Normally we don't get spring type weather until late April into May. It's normal to have snow on the ground sometimes from Sept till May, but this past year we didn't get all that much. We did get more snow than some years, but for the most part this past winter was very mild. I don't know if all of the mountains got their snow pack like they need. I am loving that it is in the 70s and low 80s in April, but it is uncommon for us. My concern is that this summer will probably be VERY hot and dry. Now I am a native Coloradoan so I do remember plenty of summers that it was this way. That it would be a mild winter and then have a very hot dry summer where they had water restrictions in some places. The worry is wildfire in this area and my best friend literally has a butte as her backyard. As dry as that is, it wouldn't take much for a fire to wipe that and part of the neighborhood out.

We don't really get much rain, I can't imagine we would even catch anything in a barrel to be totally honest. However hubby is going to hook up a gray water system to the dishwasher and from the washing machine so that we can use it on the garden and yard watering. I wonder if there are laws on gray water where they won't let you catch rain water? I didn't even know that Colorado won't let you catch rain water! Hell, I might do it anyway, just out of spite.

Hello all, I do not have alot of time to read through all the posts right now but i'll be back later to read them and add more...
Anyways, have ya'll talked about the thermohaline circulation system in the north atlantic? (aka north atlantic current, and north atlantic drift) I found some visual info at this website:

I was trying to find more updated information from 2012, and maybe another research group that these findings could be cross referenced to...

Tornado from remnants of Beryl destroy homes in NC
Tornado spins off from Tropical Storm Beryl remnants on NC coast; 3 homes destroyed

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) ' The remnants of Tropical Storm Beryl spun off a tornado that destroyed three homes and damaged dozens of others near the North Carolina coast Wednesday as the system sped toward the Atlantic, authorities said.

Between 40 and 50 homes were damaged near Peletier in the western part of Carteret County, said county Emergency Services Director Jo Ann Smith. She said there were no reports of injuries.

Many homes suffered only minor damage, but three were destroyed when the winds came through shortly before noon, she said.

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 century.

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 populations.

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 catastrophic events like the dust bowl and the last great depression.

It can be done but to count on your local power services to supply your every need if we do see the extreme heatwaves and dry spells that very well 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.

Thanks for the update. I used to live right on the coast in NC and went through a few hurricanes and tropical storms. Very different from the weather I grew up with. I think this season is going to produce a lot of hurricanes and tropical storms and if the currents are correct then the east coast could be in for an eventful season.

I hope people will listen to what you have said because you made some great points. I am lucky enough to have my own well out here in the country. If the power does go out for a sustained period we will have to dig it open and switch to a manual pump but that can easily be done by us farm folk. People that live in the cities, especially in the SW are going to have a heck of a time this year. I have been hearing talk about shortages already becoming a problem and it is only June. It is drier here than is usually is and I have been having to water my garden a lot.

We've had a few cold spells here as well where it has come close to frosting and some of my vegetable plants died but overall everything else is growing well so far. The bugs are also terrible this year as well. June bugs are bouncing off the windows all night long.

Well thank you for that it only serves to validate keeping myself busy and enjoying my life come what may because in the end I am not on this earth to be terrorized by it but to be a good Stewart of what God has granted into my care which is small but enough to sustain my family. I hear what you say about country folk, lol.

Baja California has been TERRIBLE, over the past 5 years. I'm not sure what happened, but it went from oven like temperatures to refrigerator like temperatures, over that span. We're in June, and i'm in sweats? This wasn't the case 10 years ago...when i moved here. It was scortching hot. Enough so, that i designed my house accordingly...not expecting this COLD weather. It seems like my thermometer is stuck on 60 degrees fahrenheit. The worst part is, i haven't put up my above ground 5 years. Global warming? I seriously doubt it. Weather manipulation???

Whatever will be.....MUST BE! Enjoy your lives...and live each day, like it's your last. No need to worry, panic, be afraid or freak out. Cooler heads will prevail. What if we just ignored the "elite"/PTB/NWO...and there masterplan to wipe us all out??? Do you think that would work?

Oh wait, forgot....we're already doing that....Phillip Phillips won the American Idol, eh? Hmmmm that's interesting!Prince Philip
