OREGON RUNNING OUT OF WATER
No more watering your lawns, Oregonians. Governor Kate Brown says so.
The governor issued a drought emergency in three southern and central Oregon counties, making it one more state to cut back on water usage after California started enforcing stricter rules about water usage last week. Brown is blaming the water shortages in Crook, Harney and Klamath counties on a very dry winter, saying:
"Oregon's unusually warm and dry winter has potentially dire consequences."
But these aren't the first counties in Oregon in trouble--Malheur and Lake counties in southeastern Oregon have been on a drought 911 since mid-March.
The Wildlife in Oregon is in trouble too: snowpack is at less than 50 percent of its normal level, which leaves TONS of bodies of water empty, which leaves the fish with nowhere to go.
The righteous detest the dishonest; the wicked detest the upright.
"Those who are wise will instruct many, though for a time they will fall by the sword or be burned or captured or plundered.
Be on your guard; you will be handed over to the local councils and be flogged in the synagogues.
You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.
"If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.
