More drought relief headed to the Central Coast

December 8, 2014

rainfall accuAnother round of storms is expected to sail through the Central Coast this week dropping between 3 to 5 inches of rain, according to AccuWeather.

The rain slated to start falling on Thursday is expected to bring between 1 to 12 inches of rain throughout California. Because of a recent change in the weather pattern, several back-to-back storms are expected to drench the state during the end of the week.

The last three years of drought have been the worst in more than 1,200 years, according to a recently published study by the North American Drought Atlas. The researchers used drought reconstructions from blue oak tree-ring cores in southern and central California.

Even though precipitation levels in California have been low over the past three years, the levels haven’t been unprecedented. However, while the state has been getting little rain, it has been experiencing higher than average temperatures.

    My fellow Christians, you took my prayer advice and asked for rain, and some of you seem to be TRUE believers because another storm in on track to drench the Central Coast, praise Jesus!

    JESUS STATED; “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” (Mark 11:24)

    But, I was remiss in telling my fellow TRUE Christians that when you pray, you must do so in your room in secret, shhhhhh. Sorry that I forgot about this upside to prayer, but when doing so, albeit, we’ll get even more rain!

    Jesus stated: “Whenever you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, because they love to pray while standing in synagogues and on street corners so that people can see them. Truly I say to you, they have their reward. But whenever you pray, go into your room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret. And your Father, who sees in secret, will reward you” (Matthew 6:5-6)

    I guess Atas. lake will become the water playground it once was. Now it’s filled with crap!
    A lot like our council. I voted for changes in the last election. Like the lake, city hall is stillfull of crap. Oh well, we have the zoo still.

    I used to pull some pretty nice fish out of there. Not the council, the lake.

    God Bless and Merry Christmas!

      I agree. I remember in back in 861, we had several years of no rain at all. I remember it because right after hearing that Naddoddr the Viking had discovered Iceland I thought – damn, I wish we had some of that ice!

    I have noticed that just the small amount of rain we have received in Los Osos has already taken away many of the recently awarded Badges of Honor. You can no longer boast about your lawn being browner than your neighbors!
