Californians all:

Texas! That's the place to go. No better place for you. You don't want to go to the Pacific NW, oh no--everything's grey, the sky is grey, the people are grey, the food is grey; the place is a cultural desert. Surly inhabitants. Laptops.

Texas! That's the place! Imagine a whole state full of people like ROCKMAN...err...

(Ahem)

Texas!

If you're leaving the Bay Area, you'll feel right at home in Austin, especially if you like bats.

About time to bump this thread, if nothing else, to see if we can smoke pstarr out of the (red-)woodwork :-D

California, battered by global warming’s weather whiplash...


In 1988 – the same year Nasa’s James Hansen warned Congress about the threats posed by human-caused global warming – water expert Peter Gleick wrote about the wet and dry extremes that it would create for California:

California will get the worst of all possible worlds – more flooding in the winter, less available water in the summer.

Three decades later, California has been ravaged by just this sort of weather whiplash. The state experienced its worst drought in over a millennium from 2012 to 2016, followed immediately by its wettest year on record in 2017. The consequences have been similarly extreme, including hellish record wildfires, narrowly-avoided catastrophic flooding at Oroville Dam, and deadly mudslides.

A study published last month in Nature Climate Change found that these wet and dry extremes will only worsen in California as temperatures continue to rise. As lead author Daniel Swain wrote:

most of California will likely experience a 100 – 200% increase in the frequency of very wet November-March “rainy seasons” … California will likely experience an increase of anywhere from 50% to 150% (highest in the south) in the frequency of very dry November-March periods … Since California is so dependent on precipitation during its relatively brief winter rainy season, even a single dry winter can quickly lead to adverse drought impacts upon agriculture and the environment.

California, preaching on the burning shore
California, I'll be knocking on the golden door
Like an angel, standing in a shaft of light
Rising up to paradise, I know I'm gonna shine.

My time coming, any day...

Yeah, I am here and it's drizzling and GREEN GREEN GREEN. The shore bird (dunlins, avocets, godwits et al) have begun their migration north from out wetlands and bays . . . to their Aleutian breeding grounds.

The birds are migrating north. It leaves all the bird watchers bereft. So sad :(

One of my fave's!

But this may fit the meal a bit better, though not a good method of dispatching something you plan to eat!

I prefer contemporary orchestral music myself.

MUSIC
I should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, design a building, write, balance accounts, build a wall, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, pitch manure, program a computer, cook, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

Brilliant composer!

But then John Williams never named his compositions after a failed prediction, the subject of this thread ha ha ha

Symphony No. 6 in B Minor, Op. 74 "Pathetique" - Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

It's wet, 60 degrees, and drizzling in the northern corner of the Golden State. Jealous anyone? lol

The sad truth is that California's economy is more manic than ever. The politics are just as messed up as ever, in fact they get worse all the time, since the place has been run by nothing but Democrats for decades. (Which of course does not stop them from blaming the R's for everything, even though every elected and most appointed office holders are D's.)

The influx of people continues, fron S of the border and from the other 49 states. Yesterday was kind of a new low, here in the Bay Area we had two major homeless encampments on fire at once. Nothing like drunken and stoned bums tending campfires for some excitement.

The neighbor down the street sold his home, slightly larger than mine, for $1.2M. Starting salaries for graduate, English-speaking engineers are $100K-$200K, depending upon your degree.

I'd LOVE to migrate away, I'm getting tired of waiting for the wife to quit working. I suppose I could just start packing and see what happens.

So KJ, it appears you approve of the Mass Migration INTO California.

Gots to have yo' cheap fruits and veggies. Better a pickaninnie than a migrant. Keep the work local.

My Father's family had their Oklahoma farm dry up and blow away in the Dust Bowl. They ended up living in an old black Ford sedan, following the harvests, IOW "Okies". When WW2 broke out they were in the Santa Clara Valley picking stone fruits. They got better jobs up in the North Bay, both of them working as supervisors on welding crews building Victory Ships. They both knew absolutely nothing whatsoever about welding, but the only qualification needed was a white skin, to be in charge of an entirely black welding crew.

My Grandfather got an even better job on the railroads that move materials in the shipyards. After the war, he was in the RR Worker's Union, and found a RR job in Illinois, which is where I was born.

The kid in your photo is about the right size and age to be my Father in the 1930's. If it was fruit trees instead of cotton, it could be him.

I no longer can stand California, to tell the truth. But the wife followed me here and supported me in my career, and I can do no less. But I don't have to like it, and I don't.

My parents were early adopters of moving out of California and back East. 2 1/2 yrs out there was enough. And we left in 1983. My parents couldn't stand the issues out there.

And how it has gone downhill since...
An ideology is by definition not a search for TRUTH-but a search for PROOF that its point of view is right

Equals barter and negotiate-people with power just take

You cant defend freedom by eliminating it-unknown

Our elected reps should wear sponsor patches on their suits so we know who they represent-like Nascar-Roy
