“Abnormally Dry” Means The Wettest Conditions On Record

The US Drought Monitor still says that Fort Collins is “abnormally dry” – despite the fact that the reservoirs are full, the river is at flood stage, mountain snow pack is far above normal, and the area is (by far) the greenest anyone has ever seen it. Our desert city looks like Ireland right now.

    Government workers . . . can’t expect them to be up to date.

    Or accurate.

    Or capable.

    Or honest.

    No drought in the cornbelt this year! Over 10″ of rain in May for many Iowa stations. Another poster child bites the dust.

    Warming does not include heat, and Dry does not necessarily mean Arid! The ministry of truth hath spoken! Now hand over all weapons, wealth, and personal forms of transportation. The U.N. rainbow bus will be along to pick you up for Re education camp shortly.

    “We at the Newspeak offices understand the confusion that is aroused by suboptimal thinkers in this area.
    What they fail to grasp is that in relativistic terms dry and wet have no absolute meaning, and are readily interchangeable. For example to refer to something as being wet conveys only that relatively speaking it has a degree of dryness that is below ideal. And counterwise referring to something being dry only infers that its overall moisture content is wanting in some way. Thus referring to an area of land as being dry, or even in drought, is just to downplay the moisture content that may indeed be found there but has been deemed by the higher offices as suboptimal. I do hope that clarifies the situation”

    Thank you. I have been hesitating about vacationing out west because of the drought. Who wants to go see brown mountains and be covered in dust?
