Last winter we got plenty of snow/rain and it looked like maybe we would get out of this drought. this winter it has only rained about 7 times. Don't know what the snow pack up in the sierra is like, maybe it's okay, but it's looking like another dry year here in northern cali.
oh and yesterday I felt, for sure, my first earthquake since moving to CA in 2008. I suspect there have been others but my brain edited them out as loss of equilibrium.
