Just reading that article, which can sometimes lead to exaggerations or "under exaggerations" from a reporter or network, it seems at some point the people of Las Vegas and surrounding areas will have to change how they use water.  But the rate that it is falling means its not tomorrow though I think the article was sort of alluding to the rate possibly getting faster.   It said farmers will be the first to have to change to move somewhere else. 

 

Not sure we are alive to see it but I think it quite possible that many areas people consider to retirement areas will become less habitable due to climate change.  Florida, Southwest, and Cal.  Sort of the reverse of the map you see at the end of the movie "The Day after tomorrow".  Southerners will have to move north and east.   

I agree that there’s plenty of time for people to adapt, and yes, media will play all kinds of things up for clicks, but (unless this is cyclical) at some point the lakes probably will dry up and people will need to innovate in the meantime to assure sustainability, though I believe there almost certainly will come a point where it’s not sustainable to have millions and millions of people in Phoenix and Las Vegas, parts of California, etc. anymore.

And towns like Gainesville, Ocala and Orlando may become ocean front property in Florida.  Outside the Panhandle, "Sugarloaf Mountain" is the highest point in Florida at 312 feet.   Not much room for error.

No doubt. It’d be interesting to see if/how people adapt, but I’m hoping I’m dead and gone before the situation becomes too dire.

One more thing semi-related to this tangent Re: Lake Mead/Powell. Las Vegas fell one degree short of their all time record high of 117 yesterday and Page, AZ (the town adjacent to Lake Powell) set its new all time record high of 110, though records there only date back to 1957 as that town was constructed around that time for the sole purpose of building the Glen Canyon Dam.

I have a lot more to say about this off-topic issue, and I could go on and on, but there’s a GFS run incoming. :)

Below is one depiction of Florida now and in 2100.  I could never live in the desert regardless if it is dry heat.  I guess I am just a Mid Atlantic byy but the weather here is the most interesting year round. Re: GFS, to quote @pasnownut, time for nooners.

LOL - I was reading down through the posts, saw Canderson's and responded before even seeing yours. 

Not a happy night for me last night. 

I would imagine.  I hesitated posting that as I was not trying to be mean.  I am a Mav's fan so I am already out.     Only two players (Curry and Embid) scored actual baskets in the second half.  Amazing stat.

76ers franchise history - last night was their 166th game leading by at least 20 going to the 4th quarter. Prior to last night, they were 165-0.

They had several amazing stats last night.  Was fun watching the crowd for most of 3 quarters.   A bit better organ music and M. Night Shyamalan bouncing up and down during the game (like Spike Lee) and it would be like playing in the Garden.

Saw a Knicks game at MSG back in 2014. Had been on my bucket list for years to see a game at the Garden. Great experience...can only imagine what it was like during the glory years.

It sounded incredible just this year with DRose back to playing top level ball.  They have lots of cap space so NY could be back for quite some time.

Lot's of 40's.  Ironically next Thursday the same thing may happen...may even be colder. 

GFS still seems to be on track for anomalous cold. Maybe even running a degree or two colder than the prior run.

Yep, and I may have been off by a day with the coldest.  Wed Am not Thur.  40's in MD over here and down into Georgia on your side of the Mountains (in the Mnts) 

But feast or famine on the precip. It has me getting 5+ by Tuesday. Less than an inch out your way.

Its a bit more than that.  About 2" here over the next 7 days.    You sure you have the 12Z Map?  With that said I on the far western edge of the LSV and eastern LSV is closer to 1".  Opps, I just noticed you said by Tuesday.  Some of this below is Tuesday itself.

You’re right, I was only at 15z Tuesday before the front clears.

Looks like it wants to run some serious heat up the eastern seaboard in the entertainment purposes portion of the run, but even that looks to be more bearable and transient inland before it gets snuffed out by another cold front.
