Well, it has finally rained big time in Los Angeles, and the results can be summed up like this:
1. Streets are flooded with water and full of drivers that don’t know how to drive in the rain, i.e. jammed up,
2. Almost all of the rain water lands and then runs directly down the sewer system to end up in the Pacific Ocean, where you’ll notice that there is no water shortage.
A few salient points to consider:
1. There is no real water shortage in the Los Angeles area! What there is, actually, is a people surplus. Residents seem to forget that this is an artificially enhanced desert that has water
stolen from provided by the central part of the state which was then funneled down to them, and that all of our imposed water saving laws and procedures will only serve to allow even more people to move here buying overpriced property and thereby causing yet another water shortage. A quick crash course in how it happened? Watch Roman Polanski’s epic “Chinatown”, where Jack Nicholson spells it out for you.
2. The rain that flows so quickly into the sewer system never had a chance in hell of getting into the underground water table, a quick look around the city will show you that it’s nearly completely covered with streets, freeways, buildings, sidewalks, parking lots, and that the few green areas of lawns and golf courses have been so pounded down with heavy machinery during the construction phase of all those buildings and the soil is compressed so much that the water can only briefly pool up on top while waiting to be routed to the aforementioned sewers.
