Trump was lying about giving 500 million dollars to California.

This explains why Jerry Brown said Trump has "got our back". Turns out his mistake was believing anything the man said.

Republicans are currently trying to pass a bill that would roll back environmental regulations. You know, to not "get in the way" of "preventing wildfires".

Seems like as appropriate a thing as any for Jerry to go out on.

I've got family in Maui if you want me to put you in touch with them. They probably wouldn't be any use in helping you find a house, but if you need some friends down there...

And at the rate our population is growing, and with our ongoing failures to restrict water usage, we're facing a water crisis within the next couple of decades.

Yeah, but that's old news to anyone from California.

I actually can't believe Arizona isn't already in a water crisis. "Monument to Man's arrogance" and all that.

Well, saying things like "Arizona is having a drought", while often technically true, doesn't exactly grab headlines away from wilting gardens in San Francisco.

I've been to Ashland many times, and while the town itself is gorgeous and charming, water will still be the limiting factor. That shit gets parched.

Hawaii and Seattle are real-estate shitshows but good luck.

Hawaii is out, (for now) as it was my mom's plan for after her mom dies to retire.

We might actually be moving to Seattle so she can be closer to her mom to take care of her. She wants to wait a year, so she says, to finish her job here while we rent in the meantime.

Problem is, actually finding a place to rent is basically impossible right now. Chico (and California in general) was having a housing crisis, now add 30000 displaced people into the area all looking for a place to live.

Seattle's got some pockets near the border that are still kind of affordable and while the prices have certainly not receded they've also recently stopped rapidly growing, at least.

Number of unaccounted people down to 11. Number dead has lowered to 85, which is still an insane number of people.

The Raking thing has become such a meme around here that my mom, who doesn't even know what a meme is, texted me "oh shit, we forgot to rake the river" when the sac flooded a few days ago.

Trump is cutting off FEMA money for California wildfires.

Trump wrote:"Billions of dollars are sent to the State of California for Forrest fires that, with proper Forest Management, would never happen," Trump tweeted. "Unless they get their act together, which is unlikely, I have ordered FEMA to send no more money. It is a disgraceful situation in lives & money!"

It's not actually clear he has the authority to do it, and the White House has declined to make any comment in response to querstions about the tweet. It is, however, another example of the kind of monstrous person he actually is.
