The biggest story no one is discussing or reporting.

The drought in the middle of the country. It is most dire, a much greater threat than the "fiscal cliff".

2. I cannot remember the last time it rained or snowed in Colorado?

We have been trying to water the trees and grass some to keep them from completely dying. The weather has been beautiful for November if you like blue skies and warm sunshine ..

5. Same here in NM.

Usually we've had at least one measurable snowfall here in the valley and several deep ones in the mountains by now.

This year--nada.

3. SPREADING THE SUN SHINE

 

I guess this California weather system is spreading to the rest of the country. I guess the western water wars will be the next thing happening back EAST. Then we can come together to resolve issues to keep this country going forward.

6. It's not actually happening.

 

If it's not on the evening news, it's not really happening. At least that's what people believe.

I agree with you. We are headed for a climate cliff that's far worse than any fiscal cliff. There won't be such a thing as "fiscal" when climate refugees start flooding over the border to escape the dying tropics, only to discover that the temperate zone is dying too.
