It's going to be a bad year for fire bans

Water reservoirs in the North Okanagan are at their lowest level ever recorded...

Media sure loves to hype shit like this, anything to do with "climate change" bullshit. How the hell do they know it's not going to rain all summer, or at least rain enough to make it a low risk year.

When a weatherman can accurately predict what tomorrows weather is going to be (at least in the Kootenays where it changes hourly ) then maybe I'll start believing in long term forecasting.

Dam assholes here keep talking about water shortages. Stop building houses here. Simple fuckin solution. You don't build it, they won't come, they won't use the water.

As far as this year being soo dry? Last year I didn't cut my grass once. I never watered it. Again this year I haven't watered, and yet I already need to mow. Climate change my ass. Just a bunch of media hype bullshit. Dam fear mongers.

Might not be the Sahara but it's a fuckin desert.....hopefully it rains all summer. But I doubt it

Toolbag is right....need to quit importing more water users and maybe slow the cities water usage in parks to a respectable level.


There I feel better now......

My brother buddy had his house almost wash out from under him from a water main burst. When he talked to the guys from the irrigation company they said all the resevours in our shed are full. But that doesnt help the water table or such. Never know it may yet rain all summer....has happened before
