I think Santa is infinitely strong and can withstand the forces described.

Global Warming Brought on California's Severe Drought
03/03/2015 06:25 AM

Global Warming Brought on California's Severe DroughtCalifornia's severe and ongoing drought is just a taste of the dry years to come, thanks to global warming, a new study finds. "California's warming trend is driving an increase in the risk of drought," said study co-author Daniel Swain, a doctoral student in climate science at Stanford University in California. "Warming in California has made it more probable that when a low precipitation year occurs, it occurs in warm conditions and is more likely to produce severe drought," said lead study author Noah Diffenbaugh, an associate professor in the School of Earth Sciences at Stanford.
