Mid June 2008: Again, I’m not seeing any relief in sight for Texas for July and August of 2008. It is going to be dry and hot. No rain of any significance is going to come. There will be a few spots in Texas that will get a little. The northern area of the state will have the best chance – the panhandle and near Oklahoma. The Gulf Coast will be windy, but not any helpful amount of rain during these two months. Central and South Texas will be nothing but hot and dry. The temperatures will regularly be 90-109.
The crops will suffer greatly. Farmers will be devastated in some areas of Texas and will need help. Emergency measures will need to be put in place for many farmers in Texas. Texas’ water levels will not recover from this for many years to come. There will be some recovery from this water shortage beginning in the late summer of 2010 and will get better leading up to 2013, but will never recover completely. This will be what contributes to the water crisis in Texas that the elected officials will have to face in the mid 2010’s on.
My recommendation: people need to start working on gardening, rain collection systems, and self-sustainability. Individual efforts will help because the price of water is going to go up, the prices of vegetables are going to go up, and the costs of living are going to go up. Not just because of gas prices going up, still more, but because of the heat and water problems. It will almost be very much like the dust bowls of the 1930’s except for the locations. We won’t reach the level of problems as they did in the Great Depression, but it will come close.
If anyone would like me to address other states, just let me know.
In the Bible, Joseph interpreted a dream for the pharoah, of 7 fat years preceding 7 lean years. The pharoah took steps to prepare and helped many people through those 7 lean years. My predicting this will not bring it about. It is already set in place to happen. It’s time to prepare and pray.
