No More Drought

Okay, so we all remember how over the summer there was much fire and we were all shitting ourselves?

Well now there is much rain. Which is great because all of the catchments and dams are filling up.

Problem: They've pretty much filled themselves up over the past 12 hours of rain. (Yes, 12 hours. No, not a typo). This means that once they are full (in a few hours time, by the looks of things) the water is going to go everywhere else.

I had to leave work early in order to be able to make it home before the roads were closed due to flooding. Friends have already been asked to leave thier homes while the rivers and creeks are peaking.

I'm all for the drought breaking, just not all at once. I know I'm from the land of Fire and Flood, but can we not do it within six months of each other?

Hello, global warming and increased climate extremes! *headdesk*

Can I apologize on behalf of America for my president now?

I was just saying to [livejournal.com profile] ladystarblade that those of us who can't get to Austin in January should have an online reunion that night instead. You in?

Yeah, normally we get a year or so between, not so anymore.

I really thing he should apologize himself - and I'll just squeeze some blood from this here stone ;)

Oh! Yes, yes, yes! I am so in!

Yeah, stones will bleed long before you get that apology. :(

Excellent on the gather! If we're lucky maybe the people in Austin will have net access and come on briefly and say hi to the rest of us; don't know what they'll be doing, though. ;-)

Sorry about the anonymous comment; LJ hates me and logs me out 2-3 times a day. It did so as I was posting this. 9_9
