US counts the cost of nine months of unprecedented weather

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/sep/05/us-unprecedented-weather-extremes

But the US is not alone. 2011 has seen the deepest drought in 60 years in the Horn of Africa which has contributed to a famine in Somalia and 10 million people affected in Kenya, Djibouti, Ethiopia and Uganda. Southern Africa, however, experienced unusually heavy rainfall.

The back-to-back nature of the intensity of the past two summers should raise some interesting questions, questions I am not qualified to address.

“the intensity of the past two summers should raise some interesting questions, questions I am not qualified to address.”

Some of those questions should be spiritual possibly ?

  2. Hello all!

    Those of us in San Diego (and the surrounding areas in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Baja California) had a rolling black-out from yesterday at 3:40 pm to today at 1:30 am (Some longer or shorter). People really need to learn how to drive in a power outage. Ambulances and fire trucks were all over all day long. Cars were screeching all day and sirens and helicopters were part of the sound scape as well.

    I’m going to check the “official story” right now, because we all have heard conflicting reports.

    How is everything going with you all?

    I just read about the rains in South Africa.

    Let me know.

  3. Nobody could get gasoline and many people were stranded at gas stations. Most stores closed up right away. Those that remained open raised their prices drastically in areas with no open competition, and others where there was competition were just trying to get rid of the food before it spoiled and lowered the prices. The big phrase going around on both ends though was “cash only”, “cash only”, “cash only”, and……”cash only”.
