SS: i am archiving this storm so i can come back to it later. strange how the drought stricken california just missed this massive flood of rain. there must be a reason for that phenomenon. there is like some kind of force field keeping california from getting rain because as we can see the storm that produced this flood in arizona is right next door to the drought. what i really be wondering is how those cars got caught in the middle of that flood like that. it seems like they were driving along and suddenly here comes a massive flood.. “all time single-day record for rainfall” in phoenix today.

Record-breaking rain in Arizona September 10, 2014 Residents of Arizona have a saying: “We only get about 7 inches of rain a year, but you’ll remember the night it comes.” In 2014, that memorable night was September 8. Later that day, the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Phoenix announced that the city rain gauge at the Phoenix International Airport had received 3.29* inches of precipitation. The heavy rain broke the previous calendar-day rainfall record of 2.91 inches set in September 4, 1939. Several surrounding stations recorded totals above 4 inches, and at least 2 topped 5 inches.

    Of the Un-pinned Arizona Baby Jaguars

    03-22-14eagle01

    SS: last weekend the new baby jaguars were out of their playpen .. i was standing there watching them and another person was there and we started talking about them. i was told that they were on the news and that the black jaguar is the female. i still have to confirm that but that is what i was told. i did talk to a zookeeper by chance and he told me that the other baby jaguar who was there before was in the african safari park but not on display and that they are building a jaguar exhibit special for all their jaguars. i’m not sure how much of that is true either since i could find nothing that looked like a place for jaguars in the new african safari area. he also told me that a female jaguar was due to arrive soon that would be placed with fitz. i do know for sure they are building a smaller place with a waterfall that i was told by the jaguar zookeeper that fitz would be moved into. fitz loves water.

    Distribution and habitat It has been an American cat since crossing the Bering Land Bridge during the Pleistocene epoch; the immediate ancestor of modern animals is Panthera onca augusta, which was larger than the contemporary cat. Its present range extends from Mexico, through Central America and into South America, including much of Amazonian Brazil. The countries included in this range are Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica (particularly on the Osa Peninsula), Ecuador, French Guiana, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, the United States and Venezuela. The jaguar is now extinct in El Salvador and Uruguay.

    The inclusion of the United States in the list is based on occasional sightings in the southwest, particularly in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. In the early 20th century, the jaguar’s range extended as far north as the Grand Canyon, and as far west as Southern California.

        SS: the new baby jaguar was born as great comet ISON was brightening just six weeks before it’s solar graze .. he got moved out of his play pen this week because last week he was still in his play pen. i think there is a strong chance they might keep him although i am not sure where they will put him. he might go to the new part of the zoo they are building. the big skull piercing crushing great comet baby jaguar born to crush skulls .

              SS: happy birthday fitz.. one year old now. i figure i would go see him since it was his birthday.he likes the water. his mom and dad dont get into the water like he does. fitz would catch big fish and crocodiles if he was in the wild. a jaguar kills crocodiles pretty easy. in a fight a crocodile really doesn’t have a chance against a jaguar.  the jaguar is the strongest, most nimble. and the smartest of all the hunters .. we can see how he is always in the water that he would hunt crocodiles and big fish . he spends to much time in the water not too . that is a 100+ pound rock fitz is moving around.

                SS: the above picture is Fitz from a couple weeks ago when i last seen him. i known him since he was a baby. .. this blog is really about the jaguar below that was seen in southern arizona … again. it is the same jaguar we saw before . whats special about him is he is wild. he’s the only wild jaguar in the entire united states that we know about. and i can say that knowing all the cats i think the jaguar is the strongest, most agile, and the smartest of all the hunter cats.

                Photos show male jaguar roams in Ariz. mountains azfamily.com June 27, 2013 TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — New photos show that a rare male jaguar has been roaming the Santa Rita Mountains’ eastern flank for at least nine months. The Arizona Daily Star reports that remote cameras have photographed the big cat in five locations on seven occasions since October. Photos were provided to the Star this week by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. Federally-financed remote cameras photographed the jaguar west of the proposed Rosemont Mine site in the mountains southeast of Tucson.

                  Of the Arizona Jaguar Fitz First Summer

                  SS: fitz is about to experience his first arizona summer. he survived the cold winter. now he mostly chills all the time . one good thing is that his entire cage is covered by trees so he has a lot of shade. i’m sure he will swim in his little swimming pool a lot since he likes the water. fitz brother has an uncertain future right now. he was still there at the zoo last weekend. that why i been going there a lot more lately to see if he is still there and what is going to happen with him.

                    Of the Arizona Gold and Silver Currency

                    SS: arizona has passed a law that businesses can now accept privately minted gold and silver as currency. the part i been thinking about is the “privately minted” what that means. the coins called silver rounds are minted in a private mints they are not minted by the US Mint. silver eagles and junk silver minted by the US Mint. now we have the difference figured out between coins. i do not believe that coins minted by government mints in other countries like canada and mexico are private. one time i had someone try sell me canadian maples i told them i dont buy coins with queen elizabeth on them lol.

                    SS: what i been personally thinking about this is that states like arizona are preparing for the big us dollar collapse. i dont know if that will happen or not but if it did arizona and other states passing these laws will already have a system and infrastructure in place for using gold and silver and maybe other precious metals as currency. i think us dollar might be debt and soon they might decide to collect some of the debt cyprus style. well if you had some funny money that you knew was gonna be worthless soon what should do with it while it was still good ??

                    SS: when we look at what the democrat said then we have to look at our current situation too in which we are trillions in debt and soon we will no longer talk in trillions but instead will be talking quadrillions in debt. we just had debt confiscations of people bank accounts in cyprus and that could happen in the usa says Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve if it becomes contagious. therefore relying upon a dollar that is so vulnerable is not a good strategy at all. and i think a person keeping all their money in a “bank deposit” is not that great of a strategy either.

                    Arizona House backs gold, silver as currency Apr 04, 2013 PHOENIX (AP) – The Arizona House has given initial approval to legislation that would make privately minted gold and silver coins legal tender, no different under state law than the U.S$. printed by the federal Department of Treasury.

                    Arizona gold bill moving forward  April 8, 2013 PHOENIX — A bill that would make gold and silver legal tender in Arizona has passed both the Arizona Senate and the Arizona House of Representatives.”All this bill does right now is put into place the language to recognize gold and silver coin as legal tender,” said Sen. Chester Crandell, the Heber Republican who authored the bill. Crandell said the bill would remove the commodities tax currently in place for gold and silver.
