Storms end Southern California water restrictions for millions
California’s 11th atmospheric river left the storm-soaked state with a bang Wednesday, bringing flooded roadways, landslides and toppled trees to the southern part of the state as well as drought-busting rainfall that meant the end of water restrictions for nearly 7 million people.
In Los Angeles, a man who clung to a concrete wall of the rushing, rain-swollen Los Angeles River was saved from being swept away when a Fire Department rescuer, dangling from a helicopter, reached him and he was hauled up to safety.
Every. Single. Time.
So does that mean we'll be back in a drought by June?
All those undiscovered corpses at the very bottom of Lake Mead will just have to be patient until next time.
So utterly stupid. We need to stop this cycle of waste and conservation only when it’s dire. We need to start treating water conservation as a way of life here. These drought and wet swings are only going to get worse.
