The state's water problem isn't that we don't have enough rainfall and snowpack. The problem is that we don't store enough of the runoff.

We know which side of the aisle rejects all water storage.


Yep. Right on. There is a little money for repairing dams and reservoirs. A sliver for desalination plants as noted by the Mercury News in January:

California water officials have approved $34.4 million in grants to eight desalination projects across the state, including one in the East Bay city of Antioch, as part of an effort to boost the water supply in the wake of the state’s historic, five-year drought.

The money comes from Proposition 1, a water bond passed by state voters in November 2014 during the depths of the drought, and it highlights a new trend in purifying salty water for human consumption: only one of the projects is dependent on the ocean.
And $100 billion for a railroad...... go figure.


How long has that drive in been empty?

I believe a minimum of 45 years.
The first movies I ever saw was there.
Remember seeing two movies on the same evening?
I saw Mary Poppins and some really scary Don Knott's movie that had blood on piano keys, and Garden Shears stuck in a Portrait.

I moved to San Mateo County in 1985 and the drive-in was definitely operating.

I want to see a Ballot Initiative for ending the Hi Speed Rail completely. I contacted one conservative group, about doing so and the response of the organization's president to me was, "Got $3,000,000?".



March of 1997 was near the end. 21 years is not quite 45 years.


I'm fairly sure the facility was in business roughly from 1965-2001


Being the only Drive-In Space, the last Drive-In within California, you would think that some wealthy people from Silicon Valley/Hollywood would be able to make a Boutique Film space as a Drive-In.
