Lake Mead "Low" Level Hits New Record? Into "Ration Regime 1" For First Time In History? -- July 7, 2016

Link here. This is a dynamic link. This was posted on July 7, 2016. The graph clearly shows Lake Mead level below "Ration Region 1" level. It's hard to say if it "crossed the line" early this year.

According to WBUR, May 31, 2016, Lake Mead was at historic lows:
The water level at Lake Mead, the largest reservoir in the country, is the lowest it's ever been.

The man-made lake, which straddles the Nevada-Arizona border and provides water to Arizona, California, Nevada and Mexico, is now only about 37 percent full, and the water level is expected to keep dropping over the next month or so.

If the water level at Lake Mead doesn't rise above a certain threshold again by the end of the year, it would trigger a water shortage declaration that could have major consequences for parts of the West.
One wonders if Sacramento lawmakers have been focused on the wrong things. The current historic low was predicted almost exactly one year ago.

President Obama's Legacy

Who would have thought?

From The New York Times, President Obama will be the first US president to have waged war the entire eight years of his two term presidency. And doesn't have much to show for it. The JV team scored again over the weekend in Yemen and Iraq.
Now today it's being reported in The Wall Street Journal that President Obama has slowed the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan. No links; easily found everywhere.
