Paging Noah

After a dry and mild winter, we get our winter weather patterns in the spring. Too bad rain doesn't pile up like snow and slowly melt.

The Colorado River drainage is getting a lot of moisture. That should help Lake Powell and Lake Mead.

After a devastating flood in 1966 along the South Platte through the Denver area, Chatfield Dam was built. It is now overflowing and the South Platte over it's banks in downtown Denver.

Seems Gaia does what she wants and us puny homo sapiens have little to say about it. That won't stop the econazis from screeching about "climate change".

This weather is tough on wildlife. The riparian areas support 
much of the Eastern Plains wildlife and this is nesting season. 

The people are losing fields, buildings, bridges and roads. County budgets are being hammered.

All this seems to validate the family wisdom handed down generation to generation. Build where it is high, dry, and windy.


  1. Made me think of this.

    Those guys colored a great deal of my early childhood. I recently found this on CD. Ordered it for my parents, but burned my own copy before sending it to them.

    Stay safe.

  2. Going through the same thing here - too much water in too short of a time.

    1. You were in such a prolonged drought that any flooding would be worse. No vegetation to slow accumulations.

  3. Crazy flooding buckets out there. Go west, young man, they said...but they forgot to say...pack a canoe. Stay high and dry. Well, you are in Colorado..those potheads.

    1. Potheads don't bother me. (P)regressives bother me. Already blaming a historical weather pattern on "human caused global warming".

  4. LOL. It is! Had you not driven those diesels in the 90's, this flooding would have NEVER happened. :D
