    I live in San Diego and remember the drought in the early 80’s. They were saying that it would take 50 years of normal rain fall for Lake Shasta to recover to normal. The following summer they had to open the spillway to release the water
    that would have gone over the top from the rainfall and snow pack !

    In 1970 San Diego county experienced the biggest wildfire in state history at, that
    time. We were told it would take 100 years for the back country to recover.
    Within about 2 or 3 years if you drove thru the area that burned you would be hard pressed to see any evidence of a devastating fire. Sure there was a burned
    tree here and there but nothing resembling a disaster !

    These two incidents taught me a lesson, when it comes to mother nature even with all of our technology mother nature can throw us a curve, sometimes for the good !
