Ca players etc etc
I hope your doing all you can to protect your homes if your living in foothill areas. It's going to be a nasty fire year with the drought conditions we have. LA already has a big one going on and I believe there is another up north of me. Fire breaks of 20 feet are too small (narrow) and the winds moves them much farther. You have those nasty Santa Ana's going all the time. Those rocky areas are a bitch.
Knock the grass down as best you can and remove it, All it does is fuel the fire should it reach it. Not much is going to grow in a drought anyway.

Taits,
Treacy here. Just curious, what are they reporting in LA regarding the drought conditions. In Norcal, we are facing mandatory 20% reductions in water usage. Is it the same for Socal?

LA get a vast amount of stuff out of AZ either water and or Electricity. Both try to get each others stuff as it were. Fire is raging in foot hill area around Glendora.
Got the restrictions here also I believe. I haven't watered but once this year none last months before that.
I remembered your moniker.

The local news is reporting the rainfall norm is 7" by this time. We have had 1". No restrictions on water usage but the bill I just paid to keep my lawn green, me, my dishes and clothes clean was huge for this time of the year. My grandson just got his Ca EMT certificate. He wants to be a fireman. God bless those that fight fires!

I live in Prescott,Az and we have had our share last year..I have no grass to water and most of this area is landscaped with rocks, boulders etc...Water conservation is still an issue but I control mine carefully. Lets pray the fires in Cali ( I am a native) get put out with minimal destruction and no lives lost..

How many new reservoirs have they built in California in the past 20 years? ANY?

When you play in a tournament in Hemet you are playing at the foot of a 260 foot tall earthen Dam. The lake behind stretches nearly 8 miles. Diamond Valley Lake was completed in 1999 and took 3 years to fill. It holds 800,000 acre feet of water or 260 billion gallons. It is Southern Californiaís newest and largest reservoir. It is a vital link in the regional system thatís brought water to Southern California for the past 60 years. The lake nearly doubled the areaís surface water storage capacity and provided additional water supplies for drought, peak summer and emergency needs. Plus I heard the fishing is really good too.

The weather in SoCal has been crazy this winter. I'm originally from the east coast, but have lived down here now for a few years. Definitely still not used to 80 degree winters, but this winter seems even more out of the norm.
