Re: Nationwide Satellite Photos of Snowpack 2013-2015
Articles about California drought suggest that the snow pack (60% of their water source) is 5% of average. 5%--wow. The photos show snow surface area, and while there is a change, we cannot see the "thickness" of the snow. Appreciate these views.
Cali is in for some significant changes. One benefit of living in Cali was reduced heating and cooling costs. However they will soon be paying through the nose for water.
Just watched a documentry on the Aral Sea---in Russia. It used to be one of the worlds largest lakes. It is slated to be gone soon. The two rivers that fed it were diverted to irrigate crops. Now that the lake bed is dry, the salt and dust is making it impossible to grow crops nearby due to wind blow. Nature pushing back.
