45-50" per year from 1981-2010. I thought it was more than that but still, the driest year on record.
Larry Smith, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Monterey, said the Big Sur area has averaged nearly 45 inches of rain yearly between 1981 and 2010. But the area has received about 7 inches of rain this year, about 16 percent of its normal amount.
We only had 8" of rain in Big Sur last year, while the yearly average is normally ~82". It was the driest year on record, ever.A major fire broke out in one of my favorite areas, Pfeiffer. Very sad as much of it was burned and many people lost their homes. Wildfires broke out in the L.A. area last week too. Lots of red-flags going up everywhere around the state. Hopefully it won't be another dust bowl.
According to the metric of too many ding bats like yourself in the game now.
This P.I.G. Market could crash 4000 points and still be overbought.
We need rain in a desperate way here in California. If we don't get it soon, the entire state will either be up in flames or in a dust bowl.
Yahoo is deleting a post I am trying to make about P/E ratios being at an all time high.
Tell me experts, market prognosticators, intellects: what exactly is keeping this balloon up at these nose bleed levels?
Ok, I was a huge bull of the crash all the way to about last May but this has gotten obscene to say it lightly.
77% China/Asia? So the run to $140 was on growth in China. "If" (and that is a BIG "IF") China boots them out then there will be no growth and will actually lose earnings?
Thanks for the input. I'm still searching the quarterly reports for the precise number. I'm not that familiar with the company but wasn't China one of the reasons for their exponential growth over the last year?
First purchase of AKS was at ~$6 per share after the crash in 2009, sold the entire stake from $23 to $25 a year or so later. Second purchase of AKS, I started loading in ~August of 2011 at $7 per share. Continued loading all the way to $2.80. Caught a lot of $%^& from a few morons on this board but I knew eventually it would pay off. Merry Christmas.
