or, How I wish it would rain . . .
2013 was California’s driest year in 119 years of official record keeping. The U.S. Drought Monitor shows nearly the entire state is in either a extreme or exceptional drought. California is also America’s number one food and agricultural producer. Water managers and officials in Southern California assure us they have enough reserves to get the state’s most populous region through this year and even into 2015 without rationing. Hmm . . . .
