farmers in deep trouble, watch for Willie Nelson concert out west,

people who mow lawns and people who clean pools will be screwed,

ski resorts open for mountain biking,

Mono Lake will get drained again,

your toilet will smell like a bar in TJ,

"Save Water, Shower With a Friend" bumper stickers will come back,

however, now is a good time to go winter climbing and get wiped out by a freak storm,

And this is what it should look like:

I'd say Califonia is in a world of hurt!

Let's hope for a Miracle March, eh?

DAMN!

Thanks for posting the pictures, Don.
I'm with eKat. As hard as it is on outdoor adventures, lets hope for a cold and wet Spring and Summer.
Here in Tonasket no snow, no rain for over a month? Great for getting late Fall and early Spring yard work done.

I have a friend who is out California Snow Surveying the Kern drainage, as we speak. He and his partner are calling the trip "Hut to Hut Hiking!"

They carried their skis just in case it snowed while they were out there.

SCARY!

We've adopted water saving techniques at my house....

If it's yellow let it mellow, if it's brown flush it down...
