Colorado Flooding Seems Inevitable

Spring runoff hasn’t even started yet from the high country, and the Poudre River is already approaching record depths for the date.

    I sometimes wonder if the flooding is intentional. Since it serves several purposes.

    1. Stark evidence of CLIMATE CHANGE! for the MSM headlines.

    2. Removes people from their land.

    3. Allows land to be bought up CHEAP.

    George Soros buying up flooded farm land
    …A Missouri farming and ranching contact just got off a conference call wherein he was informed that the federal government is sending out letters to all of the flooded out farmers in the Missouri River flood plain and bottoms notifying them that the Army Corps of Engineers will offer to BUY THEIR LAND.

    Intentionally flood massive acreage of highly productive farmground. Destroy people’s communities and homes. Catch them while they are desperate and afraid and then swoop in and buy the ground cheap….

    George Soros appears to be “investing” in farmground through the same puppet company that he used to get into the grain elevator and fertilizer business. The company is called Ospraie Capital Management and is buying up farmground in a joint venture with Teays River Investments as a partner….

    One thing COF discovered is the Trojan Horse that no one is discussing. That being the attempt at controlling of our food supply. Grain Elevator Operators for the most part can control what the farmer ends up getting paid. They are the middle man. I suggest we stay alert on this one. It is the way many farms were lost during the depression. They would get loans from the Operators, have a bad crop one year, or the Operator claiming there were problems with his product. The farmers have no where else to take their product. They get paid what the Operator decides.

    This confirms the sea level rise in Colorado, detected by satellites.

    Looks like Amanda might throw moisture into western Colorado toward the end of next week.

      Amanda will probably be a tropical storm by the time the cold waters further north sap its strength. Seen this pattern in practically every hurricane in this area. Hope we get lots of rain from it over the Southwest, but I wouldn’t hold my breath on it.

  4. Send Al to the Pole says:

    According to the Lake Powell Database, snowpack is almost 150% of normal, but flow for this date is modest – about 60% of normal. The lake sits at ~78% of capacity. It suggests we’ll get a late surge – if summer ever shows up.

    “Spring runoff” – Meteorological spring ends in a week. it shall have to be the summer runoff

    If we had real leadership in government, they would be trying to capture the snow melt. The lower Midwest was saved from flooding by harnessing the Arkansas River years ago. Back when some Senators had some engineering background….

    What do you expect? Global warming causes floody-droughts and snow melts. QED.

  8. Colorado Wellington says:

    I just hope for a runoff before the next winter sets in. The alternative is as unappealing as daily receipt processing that takes 25 hours.
