Re: LCR Big Canyon pumped hydro project

@RedRoxx44 Contrary to popular belief, Lake Powell was not the result of negotiations over the controversial damming of the Green River within Dinosaur National Monument at Echo Park; the Echo Park Dam proposal was abandoned due to nationwide citizen pressure on Congress to do so https://www.usbr.g...

Re: Mindless chit chat

The drought is often said to have persisted for decades now, and we may in fact be in a "megadrought". But regardless, after a couple of inches of rain it only took two weeks to change everything. Praise be to Cthulhu!

I always thought it was just a developer ploy that ends with "See!? A tram isn't so bad after all!"

Re: Mindless chit chat

NWS Phx published a review of last month's anomalous rain event across the state. It's 100% nerdy stuff that probably only Jim will be interested in. But just in case there's a silent lurker out there who also appreciates such things, here's the link: https://www.weather.gov/psr/StormReportfor2126Ju...

Re: 2021 Fire Season

I can't really tell by looking at the updated closure order, but it looks like Picketpost might be open. Picketpost was not restricted even under the former closure order (https://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/fseprd923425.pdf) which only covered area east of the 177. The updated closure m...

Re: Union wants to close some trails because "ermagherd so warm"

FWIW, though this may have escaped some here, it is possible to be BOTH sympathetic to first responders injured in the line of duty AND ALSO support fact-based policies that will actually help reduce danger and limit potential injury to these valued community servants in the future. As opposed to th...

Re: Mindless chit chat

@DmN The high in Phoenix was 81°F today. This follows highs of 83°F the past two days. For the first time in recorded history (since 1896), Phoenix has had three consecutive days in July with highs in the low 80s I'm not sure what the definition of "low 80s" is. There are a couple of folks on here ...

I don't have a photographic memory of weather events over the years, but I can't recall even a winter storm that provided such widespread precipitation across the entire state over such a long duration.

The federal government doesn't mess around. Not Wyoming jurisdiction, laws or prosecution.
