I am well aware of where a lot of our foods come from and I agree that rain is the essence of life. As far as the price of our food baskets goes I do have a few minor issues. If I pay a dollar each for a Ca. grown avocado today while the drought is in full swing, I will probably be paying $2 each after the rains fix the drought. 63 years and I have never seen the price of anything really go down! The first time I ever bought gas for my very first car it was 4 gallons for a dollar!
