Skip to comments.CALIFORNIANS TURN TO RAIN DANCES FOR DROUGHT RELIEF
Posted on 02/06/2014 8:18:00 AM PST by Phillyred
The Central Coast is in much need of rain, and one group is asking for it in a unique way. The Central Coast Center for Spiritual Living hosted a rain dance in Templeton Park on Saturday. A Native American reverend led the dance. Rain dances have been performed by American Indians for hundreds of years, to evoke water during dry seasons. The Center for Spiritual Living says it believes the power of many minds focused on the same goal will produce results. They also held a meditation session after the dance, and prayed for rain.

I guess praying is out of the question in CA....
Maybe they should be turning to the west instead.
All that water in the Pacific Ocean they have out there and they can’t figure out how to use it.
Arthur C. Clarke once wrote, back when NOAA was seeding clouds with silver iodide crystals in an effort to make rain back in the 60’s: A modern scientist would be hard pressed to explain to a witch doctor how his making smoke to create rain is any different than his making smoke to make rain...................
Timing has a lot to do with the success of a ‘rain dance’.
What ever happened to cloud seeding and con trails? This reactionary pseudo-religious behavior cannot be tolerated!!!!
Maybe they should reduce consumption. Hey, here’s an idea. Stop being a sanctuary state. Send all them messycans back to that hole they came from. Then maybe kalifornia wouldn’t be such a hole.
Next, a voodoo priestess will shake some magic chicken bones and a dowser will find a vast new aquifer using nothing but a forked stick.
And the Coast Toasties think us folks here in Flyover Country are a bunch of backwoods rubes ...
Climate lasts all the time and weather only a few days. - Mark Twain essay, attributed to anonymous students............
Run to the climate hubs and get your seat on the sand arcs!
Just make sure you bring two same sex democrats or they won’t let you in!
Yeh — just think about all the water that is consumed by the interlopers crossing into California.
The least they can do is require the interlopers to bring their own water with them.
.... Oh .... and add that to the fact that in the mid 90's the enlightened ones in California decided to divert a huge portion of water away from cities and farm lands to save some minnows in the Delta thus creating a predictable disaster in the cities and farming communities. Since then there has been near dust bowl conditions in much of the farming areas of Central CA .... but the enlightened ones will insist that this disaster is a result of Global Warming and not their disdain of the Technology that created the ability to farm the desert lands in the first place.
.... The enlightened ones live in denial ... and the solution to the drought problems is actually obvious to the ones that they consider to be vapid idiots ... but who in fact are the true enlightened ones ... the ones with the solutions.
Ah, that phrase brought back memories of the early days of VCRs, when my buddy and I would haul our two massive Video machines together and make copies of tapes. Since the process seemed beyond comprehension to most people (it required three RCA cables), we just told them we used a magic chicken bone ;-)
But, by CA standards, doing the rain dance is fairly sane. I hear it works better if they dance naked and stream live video, however...
The solution, which California will never accept, is clear: http://www.jta.org/2013/05/28/news-opinion/israel-middle-east/water-surplus-in-israel-with-desalination-once-unthinkable-is-possible
The pot plants must be dying off.
16 Be careful, or you will be enticed to turn away and worship other gods and bow down to them.
17 Then the Lords anger will burn against you, and He will shut up the heavens so that it will not rain and the ground will yield no produce, and you will soon perish from the good land the Lord is giving you.
18 Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.
2 Chronicles 7:14
14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
I don't know what group puts them up.
It is about the smelt.
We are enjoying the rain here in NC. Looking forward to a great planting season Lord willing.
