Blah, and More Blah.


Not much to say as my outrage box is overflowing to the point I’m numb.

Sort of a good news, bad news story.

Good news is that Emperor Polis was forced to back down. Bad news is that the case didn’t reach the Court and a permanent slap of all the (P)regressive assholes put in place.

I’ve yet to see anyone explain how our Emperor has statutory authority to do any of his antics. Thirty days declaration of martial law and calling out the National Guard is all he has, as I understand it.

Monday I had business in the South Park area (Fairplay, CO 9, Hwy 285). There was only 2’ or less snow cover when a normal year there would be 4-6’. Colorado winters in the mountains are judged by how many strands of wire on a four strand barbed wire fence are covered. Normal is three-four. Right now it isn’t even one. Downstream dependents on Colorado originated water best start preparing now for drought. Clear that vegetation (soon to be fire tinder) away from your structures.

I haven’t experienced a day like that in decades. There wasn’t even a wisp of a cloud in sight and the mountains stood out like an abstract painting. What local pilots call, "severe clear". Sorry, no pictures.

Swiped the header meme of a cousin’s Facebook posting. Seems accurate.

And finally, God Bless Texas! The lawsuit against the swing state election results may be our best (and last) hope to prevent a Harris/Biden debacle.

Polis has NO authority to do this, and if he doesn't understand this, he's not fit for office.

I've met two old timers here that told me they expect this winter to be warmer and drier than normal. Warmer I don't mind, but drier I do. We need the soil moisture as well as the snow pack.

Polis is just a spoiled kid from wealthy parents who grew into a dishonest businessman and an arrogant adult. Epitome of a Boulder resident and CU Alumni. Old CO saying, "Whiskey is for drinking and water is for fighting".

The North Platte river starts in Colorado. It feeds the Ogallala aquifer. About 1/5th of USA crops (depending on the source you research) are grown from water drawn from this aquifer. It is already being drained faster than it is being replenished.

From the net.
La Niña is likely to continue through the Northern Hemisphere winter 2020-21 (~95% chance during January-March), with a potential transition during the spring 2021 (~50% chance of Neutral during April-June).

Generally means low snowfall but......some years we get up to 40 days of snow toward Spring. Who knows?

Outrage Box full? Right with you and yes, God bless Texas. Let's see how this plays out and whether we actually have a country left, as opposed to a hollowed facsimile run by Billionaire Marxists and their millionaire servants.

No snow? Sounds like an urgent need to raise taxes, a lot, which they will if the coup finally succeeds.

Yep, we've had three 70+ days in a row in DECEMBER, after having snow and ice in OCTOBER... 2020 weather is as screwed up as everything ELSE this year... sigh

Must be Globull Warming. This weather pattern has only repeated over the past 100 years.

Hopefully 2021 doesn't cause us to think fondly of 2020!
