8 months of no rain!

Post by DNS »

Las Vegas broke it's own record for the longest dry streak of no measurable rain.

240 days of no rain, until today when it finally rained. I believe this is the longest dry streak of no rain for any large city in the U.S., since they started keeping records.

I believe you get the water from a reservoir (dam).
What is the water level percentage at the moment?

Correct, from Lake Mead, which feeds from the Colorado River.

You can see where the water line used to be, almost covering this hill in the lake.

Water battles within and between Western states have been going on for a long time. Here is the SCOTUS decision on NM vs TX:

Sounds like here in Melbourne. There's a saying that we have "four seasons in one day"...



We are scheduled a lot of rain today, but it hasn't hit yet.
