>> what about next year? pique next year they're saying they won't tbairn tee any water. >> none? >> zero. >> he's all ready trilling one of the locations thompson identified. >> you never know until you put the hole in the ground and figure it out. >> his customers include pop you lar wineries. and we confirmed they're happy with his work. but even thompson can't explain exactly why witching works for him. >> my theory is that we're kind of like a radio. and we're tuning into the electromagnetic fields of the earth. we have something there. there's no science to back that up. but thompson does sometimes work in conjunction with geologists and hydrologists. and doug hill's vineyard, they hit water at 400 feet deep. but the quality isn't good enough. the well cost $12,000 to dig. and the drill isn't available for months. >> what do you say to people who doubt you. >> i hand over a pair of rods.
>> so you feel that. >> so what is that telling me. >> you're over a water source here. >> the rods did move. >> but i don't foe what i'm feeling for. >> it's your mind sending a signal to your motor mys cuellar system to close those rods. >> he's right. psychologists call the muscle twitches idiosyncrasies motor movements caused by mys cuellar activity. he claims his findings have resulted in 4000 wells. this water spot is right here. the only way to find out if he's right this time is to dig another well that will cost 10s of thousands of dollars. well worth it to dug hill if he finds the water that will save his vineyard. carter evans in napa valley. you should check out usgs's site. the u.s. geological survey, they have a lot to say about who there's much science behind water divining. but there's a lot of science
behind what darryn is about to tell you. it doesn't look good. >> when we look at long range forecast, you know, it's good to look at them. there's no guarantee. anything passed a7 you don't want to go to the bank on too heavily. but we've gotten better over the years with long range forecasts. for the months of december, january, february, the shades on the map show you what the degree of confidence is. precipitation is either going to be above or below average. so as we come back here closer to home, we fall into the lighter shades of tan. which tell us, you know, there's a low to moderate degree of confidence we're going to be below average. that's all you can take away from this. but one other thing that does stand out about this map. that pretty much fits the profile almost exactly. for what the climatology is of a winter when you're under the influence of la nina. and that's what we are this winter. this is ala nina winter. the temperatures are cold enough it reor ens orients the
storm track. california comes away with less precipitation. enough on that. we know what it's been like for the last several days. it'll stay that way. a few high clouds fall apart over night. tomorrow is another blue sky they. really pretty. just like today. mid 40s for most places. mid 50s. and daytime highs keep getting up near 70. a couple places in the south bay will do it. most other places are looking at mid 60s. there are some low 70s in the tri-valley. as we get back into the bay along long the east bay shoreline, we have a few 70s. a really nice close to this four-day weekend. it's been fantastic. hopefully you've had friends and family visiting and you can show off how spectacular it is around here. look at that long stretch of clouds. look at the water vapor. you see a high concentration
ribbon pointed right at the pacific northwest. that's what it's been doing for much of the last few weeks. here comes the next one. that's another impressive one lined up. a large amount of rain. long stream across the pacific. we've been locked in that pattern. as long as the pacific northwest keeps getting drenched, then that's where the storm track stays. if you remember that image we looked at it did show the pacific northwest with a high degree of confidence having above average precipitation. that's the way the next week and be a half is going to look. that's what we have to live with. not too bad when you're in it. sunny and 70 in early december. who wouldn't take that for a week at a time. but hopefully not all winter, right now it's definitely the next seven days. and probably a little longer than that. and then we'll take it from there. okay, brian. back to you. coming up, a kpix 5 original report, open heart and empty arms. sometimes i feel really
has 40 years experience in over seas adoptions. >> i have never seen anything that begins to compare with the magnitude of this issue. >> 400 american families are on hold in their adoption of chinese children. 140 families are working with holt. china has told them it will reopen its borders when it's safe. >> who knows when that's going to be. >> the best guess, after beijing hosts the february olympics. >> we feel confident that there will not be travel until at least after the olympics are over. >> the good news, to protect them from covid, china's put
adoptive children and their caretakers together on lock down, and sometimes those caregivers have shared updates. jessica has emailed sign language videos she's recorded at home to connect with her son an ocean away. his caretakers sent back videos of him following her lessons. >> it's really cute. you can see him watching it and listening and doing the signs and so that gives me just a spark of joy and hope. >> these are sariah's school pictures. >> the pandemic delayed domestic adoptions. she's filing papers to adopt her five-year-old great niece sariah when the city sheltered in place. it was tough getting the required physical. >> they wouldn't allow you to go in the hops. >> besides zoom. visits were socially distanced outside. even in the rain.
alternative family services in oakland saw a third fewer adoptions last year as zoom meetings replaced in-person parent training, cpr classes and court hearings. >> it took a lot longer due to the fact that we weren't able to meet inperson. but we were able to get it done. >> kimberly's adoption was final after a year. jessica's application drags into its fourth year. >> i keep reminding myself it's in god's timing. >> she waits for the day when she no longer holds an image in her hand but a son in her arms. kpix 5. >> november is national adoption month. we posted more information on the organizations from sharon's report on kpix.com. in the meantime, thanks for watching, we'll see you become here at 11:00. and we promise that juliet will be back tomorrow night. looking forward to that too. until all of this happens t news continues on kpix.com along with darryn, i'm brian
