Re: Beaver County Oklahoma Fire

In the wind sunday morning the flames could be seen for over 60 miles.... Love these march winds.

We had a few spits of rain yesterday --- Anything helps.

And USDA continues to desire more CRP acres so they can miss-manage them.

Re: Beaver County Oklahoma Fire

We're still waiting for snow to melt off, now got rain forecast for next 2 days.  We're willing to share some of the moisture.

Great Lakes higher than they've been in a long, long time.  Many of the $1 million lakefront homes have again lost their beaches to Mother Nature....I know I feel sympathy (not).  Smiley LOL

Re: Beaver County Oklahoma Fire

Wonder how long it will take chairman sanders and his "that ought to be free" troops to drain the great lakes like the Russians did to the Aral...?  We could use a few gallons shed in the sw every March.... fire fighting on the formerly short grasses of the region converted to tall grass (the cattle don't like) by one of those federal projects.... good for the "environmental job creation" universities and habitat for hunters.

Fact.... There is a Water rights public employee in Ks, who's job it is to diminish the use of groundwater by regulation, who has been known to promote a plan to build a pipeline from the Missouri River North of KC and South of Omaha --mostly west and a little south 350 miles to replenish the Ogallah Aquifer.  Yep that is uphill all the way and will require some power, maybe even pushing it back in the ground...... and no there is no plan to change the regulations in place to allow irrigation to redevelop.  Never any limit to the dreams created by having some authority over other peoples money.  Oh it will take a vote or two and a lot of public clamoring of vague overstated details without regard to side affects. "We can stop those spring floods by diversion".    And yes a love of things "as they were", "as god intended", or "Natural Pristine Goals" as only our wise Universities can provide and career federal employees can accomplish.  (with someone elses money)

The northern plains has had some wonderful years of moisture the last 10-12 years.  Nothing can terminate that like a federal program.  Especially a soviet style irrigation project.  "It should all be free".......
