Haikus are easy
sometimes don’t make sense
Some of you have seen reports of flooding and lots of rain here in California. Some levees have been breached, there have been mudslides and Interstate 80 will likely be close due to heavy snow.
First, Heather and I are safe. Our biggest problem is restless cats who can’t go out and play in the garden.
Second, the media is over sensationalizing things – again.
The house that slid in the mudslide shouldn’t have been built there in the first place and was coming down sooner or later. The levees break all the time and generally flood land that’s not in use or it’s not an immediate danger (fallow farms, parks, wildlife preserves, green belts) – in fact some levees are meant to break to relive pressure.
And finally there are about 30 snow plows in the whole state and the stores don’t sell snow shovels. Two inches of snow can paralyze the whole state.
The only news story here is that, it’s not rained in a few years and this is what happens when it rains.
If you need me – I’ll be trying to figure out what causes water to fall from the sky,
