Not One Drop: How Long Will California Survive Life Without Water?

Prophecy Sign:  Droughts 


So what did ancient Israel do to offend God and subsequently receive the punishment of drought? They rejected God for other gods.  What is California doing to offend God?  They are telling the world through movies, television, and the world wide web, that God does not exist and to instead worship the gods of your own making.   Any coincidence that California is now in the same predicament as was ancient Israel?

I will lay waste the mountains and hills and dry up all their vegetation; I will turn rivers into islands and dry up the pools. Isaiah 42:15 NIV

Not One Drop: How Long Will California Survive Life Without Water?
As the California drought approaches its fourth year, Seville’s well is one of hundreds of private water holes coughing up sand and spitting air in the Central Valley, according to Tulare County officials. As many as 100,000 more wells are at risk around the state if the rains don’t come by October.
In what is still the most productive agricultural county in America, the pantry of brands like Hershey’s and Häagen-Dazs, Sun-Maid and Yoplait, the rising number of completely dry homes here has shocked officials and become a visceral symbol of California’s unending dry spell. Thousands of people—most of them farm workers and their families—find themselves with no running water to wash, drink, flush or cook.

Desperate Californians steal water from fire hydrants as rich community pays half a million dollars for over-watering lawns
The ongoing water crisis in California has sparked an apparent crime wave in some parts of the state, with desperate residents illegally taking water from fire hydrants in the middle of the night to keep their lawns green and their animals happy. Reports indicate that, in some areas, as much as 10 percent of the water supply has gone missing, presumably due to theft, a premonition of much worse things to come if rains remain at bay. The city of Lemoore, for instance, a community of some 25,000 people south of Fresno, has seen numerous water thefts in recent weeks — a growing black market for water amidst one of the worst droughts in California history. According to The Hanford Sentinel, thieves are believed to be attaching hoses to fire hydrants throughout the city and pumping water into large plastic tanks affixed to the back of trucks.
