“Due to the state’s persistent cash and budget problems, the State Controller announced ............, that because of the state’s cash shortfall he will have to delay refunds for 30 days starting February 1, 2009 for Personal Income Tax and Business Entity taxpayers.

Refund payments will resume when the State Controller indicates there is enough cash available to make refund payments.”

From: Franchise Taxboard Website 2/3/2009

This is the taxpayers’ own money not being returned to them.

If MediCal payments to Doctors are delayed or denied...the healthcare system in California will be in very dire straights.

Re: California Fiscal Woes!

All true. Our economy is in the tank, ham actor for governor etc…

However, it has been in the mid 70s to low 80s so far this *February* with blue skies and the occasional fluffy little white cloud wafting by on the ocean breeze just to break the monotony…

Where *did* I put my beach towel…

But they’re always wrong! They just say stuff like that to justify their jobs.

well, well, well… here it is tomorrow and all is well. The LA weather ‘droids are vastly overpaid. (currently 79 deg. F and severe clear)

Re: California Fiscal Woes!

Yep!

I just came in from a lovely stroll in the neighborhood basking in the rays!  Not a cloud in sight.

Gotta love S Cal.

Gotta hate the denizens when they gloat over their (lack of) weather--as my sister-in-law does every single damn time I call. (She wants to know why I don’t move. I say it’s because I just happen to be fond of grass and trees.)

Re: California Fiscal Woes!

Do you mean like Redwoods and Sequioas?  I’ve got grass in my yard and was gone all last week to the Sierras on a ski trip at 10,000 ft.

All in one day’s drive!  How boring!  You know, we might even get rain this week, or so they say.

Re: California Fiscal Woes!

I don’t have to drive an hour (belching noxious gasses all the while) to see a tree. Did you have someone water your “grass” while you were gone? My brother used to live by a tiny not-yet-paved-over bit of land along the side of a highway in Long Beach he called “the greenbelt”. I called it “the parched belt”.

Re: California Fiscal Woes!

You sound unhappy, scotch.

I have the modern technology of sprinklers to take care of the landscaping.

No need to drive all day to see a tree.  I’m within 1 hour of Palomar Mtn, covered with cedar forest for miles at a stretch.  I also have a view of the Pacific from the house.

As to weather, 2 years ago, in mid September, I was backpacking in the Eastern Sierras at very high altitude. I was pinned down in my exped tent for 2 nights and a day while temps dropped from 70’s to mid teens at night.  Heavy rain and snow continued throughout the time, while the winds over Banner pass were gusting over 80 mph.

It was tense because I was still 2 days from my vehicle.

That’s Real Weather!
