Yesterday was a blustery day here in Tigger Land. {RCA bounces like Tigger} The electricity went off and on so many times the Dish had to reload over and over again.  I missed The Chew. Then the power went completely out. That means no water here because the pump runs off of electric. 

The pups flying saucer pans really turned into flying saucers. The dog house kept moving around in near circles,  luckily it didn't take flight. The pups were brought into the house, and with the TV off and all the power they went to sleep. Around 7 PM the electricity came back on thank you PGE.  There are people in the Clovis area that are still without power.  The morning news showed horrible footage of LA with streets lined with fallen trees. They reported wind up to 105 mph. 

I went outside and saw that several branches from the eucalyptus had broken off, one is lying across the dog kennel and needs to be cut up for firewood. The corners of the property are filled with tumble weeds and the ground looks like cement where the wind blew the top soil, not really top soil thanks to water issues in the Valley, but dust.  I have seen worse, so it isn't that bad.

I was waiting for the wicked witches house to land on the house but I don't have her ruby slippers here.  The triple pane windows were trying to rattle and there was a vibration on the inside panes on the sliding door. The Guaranteed to Rust Bells were clanging wildly. The Orange County register posted about the Best in the OC for margarita's yesterday anywhere in california was the best place for margarita's or a nice gin and tonic with a slice of lime.  who cares. The cell phone was losing power and I was happy I had a cell phone charger for the truck. Somewhere there is a trash can of mine that blew out of the ditch and off who knows where, I guess it will never be seen again.

And today I am remembering a paper I wrote for a folk lore class time capsule, where I wrote about how my dad's family worked in the Oranges until 1980. Today because of the water issues I was reading about, I am remembering how a cousin worked in the grapes, and guess what, ag isn't using as much water as they continually report in the news with their scare tactics reports to grab water from the Valley. In fact one of the biggest users is the Industrial areas of California including a semi conductor.  So now I am wondering if the recycling waste water is being used for the purpose of cooling a semi conductor. I know they have brought recycled waste water to Kings county for the farmers/dairymen/ranchers to use to water the crops, but is it also being used for the semi conductor? Just wondering since it is and will remain an issue for the Bay Area smelt who are dying because of the waste that is getting dumped into the Bay and because they need fresh water to flush !
