The End of California's 'Permanent' Drought

A nice posting at WattsUpWithThat. 

So far, the spillway has held. I wonder if all of the "permanent drought" nonsense caused by the global warming crowd provided a rationalization for delaying necessary water projects.

The last I heard, the spillway has held. The Sacramento Bee has had good coverage.

UPDATE 7:38am. Sure enough. Warnings of the dam's failure were not acted upon.

Heavy rains expected the next seven days.


  1. I think we'd be singing a different tune if Law makers in Sacramento had listened to the requests from cities and farmers begging to build more water storage along California's rivers. Instead of headlines about evacuations and eminent flooding concerns, Headlines might have read, California's water storage is finally paying off as dams are being filled in record fashion. Halelujah. Now because of EPA overreach and state congressional delay we are getting damn failure reports instead of dam filling reports. The seeming spelling error was not an error!
