Drizzle occurs most certainly during the months following the shift, and thereafter depending upon location. The atmosphere is low, clouds low, as the atmosphere was stripped away during the shift and must rebuild. Thus, clouds being low, is like continuous fog, and fog settles out in the form of rain, or drizzle, upon any slight temperature change. If the land is downwind from a large water source, like a lake or ocean, then certainly there will be fog, and drizzle, until the atmosphere rebuild. If the land is high, inland, away from air passing over water and then over land where there are temperature changes, then no drizzle, and perhaps even dry air. This water can be used for drinking, and harvesting the fog is a recommended way of gaining drinking water. Fog harvests are done by placing material that causes condensation, which then drips down the material, perhaps a sheet, into buckets. The atmosphere is expected to rebuild over a 50 year period, but the clouds lift during that time such that they are not close to the ground more than 5 years, and thus one can compute the drizzle period accordingly.

Continuous drizzle, has been predicted for the world for some 25 years, during the time when volcanic gloom will also prevail and the clouds lie close to the
ground. There is a nexus between volcanic gloom and the continuous drizzle we have predicted in the Aftertime. The volcanic gloom, where wafted into the upper
atmosphere, is less devastating than when held close to the ground, but this is what will be occurring. The rains predicted during the pole shift, the deluges, are a
result of the hurricane force winds that wipe over the oceans and then inland. And this process, after the existing poles melt and the land masses shrink, will
continue to some degree, as ocean breezes will be close to land. Fewer deserts, due to less isolation from water drenched breezes. Add to this that the atmosphere
is low, and the volcanic dust can only rise so high. It is no secret that rain often is incited by dust, water forming around a particle, and this process will be in place
worldwide. It is the rain, to some degree, which cleans the air of the fine volcanic dust that will blow about, otherwise, seemingly endlessly. Thus, there is a
relationship, the 25 years we have predicted for volcanic gloom, also being in place for continuous drizzle. This is not to say that survivors must live in their
raincoats, as this will be a reducing phenomena, over the 25 years.
Most plants that like strong sun, or shade, will struggle along in an adverse setting, simply giving way to other plants that flourish, being pushed out. Thus, if there are no competitors, the existing plants will struggle on, or attempt to. If there are competitors, then survivors should simply change their diet! We would suggest that those intent on surviving analyze their target climate, including likely rainfall and volcanic gloom, and plan accordingly. Store seeds and livestock or fish for the target climate! Take a hand in establishing new fauna and domesticated animals. This would include weeds, as they are often hardy, with domesticated crops being bred for high produce, not hardiness. Weeds may not be welcomed now, in fact excluded or prohibited, but in the Aftertime be the most likely produce. Thus, think of the target, and see how well your local food sources will do. If well, then you are fortunate, if not, then aggressively plan for the target. Take responsibility for your survival, your Aftertime living, and no apologies!
