Knowing that we had a RECORD snowpack this year, the ACoE should have opened the Missouri dam system up starting early in the spring so as to gently and gradually draw-down the reservoirs and give each dam system enough slack to absorb the snowpack runoff.
So now what's going on? The Army Corps of Engineers has offered to buy up land that was being flooded ...
Army Corps of Engineers officials are blaming “unfortunate timing” for some ruffled feathers over a letter that recently was sent to 17 northwest Missouri residents.
A copy of the letter, obtained by The Star, showed the Army Corps offering to buy private land along the Missouri River for a wildlife conservation project. The letter was dated June 6, when floodwaters were beginning to rise.
I think it's really important that people start looking into the sophisticated array of technology the "government" can use to alter the weather. I tend to agree with AP at the Twelfth Bough -- maybe "Global Warming" is, among other things, convenient cover to explain all the freaky weather the world's been plagued with lately. If you think about it, there's a lot of things that have been happening lately that are just not natural. Like e. coli suddenly mixed in with DNA from the bubonic plague. And Biblical floods and disasters coming every 3 months or so (remember Australia?).
I can't help but think of Pentagon official J.D. Crouch who called Hurricane Katrina a "good dry run." There was a guy that ran around buying up land in New Orleans, too, by the name of Judah Hertz. Here's a web page that compares him with 9-11's "Lucky Larry" Silverstein.
It's not nice to fool with Mother Nature. I can guarantee she's gonna come back and bite these guys in the butt.
