Body = Recent landslides that destroyed homes in the Bluebird Canyon
area of Laguna Beach, CA have failed to throw a damper on efforts
to bring about one last storm to break the 1883-1884 Los Angeles
rainfall record of 38.18 inches.
In a statement
released by the Save Los Angeles Now! coalition, spokesperson Sondra
Lowell explained, "We send our condolences to the Bluebird
Canyon homeowners. However, Laguna Beach is in Orange County, south
of Los Angeles, and our meteorologists tell us that a 1.14 inch
rainfall that soaks us but spares Laguna is do-able."
Added the activist,
"We must push on with the project at hand and not let our
compassion sidetrack us at this late date." Rainfall must be
logged before June 30 of this year to count toward the 2004-2005

Sondra Lowell, "Los Angeles is in a near-perpetual state of
drought, and Northern Californians don't want us using their water.
We are very fortunate that, due to a common goal, we have their
support in this crisis."
