Our part of the Sierra Nevada range has been in a severe drought for a few years. Last year our county of Tuolumne suffered a major forest fire that burned over a quarter million acres of mostly prime timber. It involved Yosemite N.P. on its southern edge and became the second largest wildfire in California's history. Needless to say we are very appreciative of any rain or snow we can get. Yesterday we recieved about 2 inches of this most important resource. :laughing4:

I know most of you on this forum are sick of winter so I doubt a rainstorm is exciting.

True Croatoan. Many may not realize that our drought here will affect prices across the Country for Meat, Produce, and Dairy.

Not as much as biofuel mandates. Talk about stupid! Worse yet, due to contractual obligations with Mexico, what little water there is will go south. Maybe the migrant workers will stay south of the border, giving California's welfare systems a much needed break.

A little rain is a lot more complex than most people realize. Glad to see it.
