Pie In The Sky

Every day you hear some people clamoring for more domestic drilling, ‘Drill Baby Drill’, and you might ask yourself if they are really that uniformed?

The U.S. government has estimated that there are 18 billion barrels of oil in the outer continental shelf of the lower 48 states that are off limits to development. That may sound like a lot, but it is only about 2 ½ years of supply for the United States, and it would take several years to allocate leases and drill exploratory wells. Even if the estimated 10 billion barrels of oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge were available for development, today’s policy decisions would have no impact on gasoline supplies for as much as a decade.

I Did It !
I finally managed to make an appointment with the local DMV over the phone, and it only took 3 days of navigating the talking computer menu.

I get to experience this time saving feature on Tuesday morning.

Bald eagle looks for food on Shasta Lake.

As you might imagine, the return of sunny weather is a welcome event for living things of all stripes. The birds are singing, people are out and about, and the flowers are spreading their blossoms for their preferred pollinators.

The lake is at the right level, and the volcanoes are snow capped. If we are conservative in our consumption, we can avoid the perennial, ‘California Water Crisis’, for a few years.

Time to get out and enjoy this wonderful weather today.
