It rained the last two days, after 12 days without rain before that.
How dry is it?
As they say, "a picture is worth 1,000 words": California's Historic Drought.
The year 2013 was the driest in California's recorded history, and predictions for 2014 aren't much better.
Meanwhile, I talked to my in-laws in Ann Arbor, Michigan, today. There's still almost 3 feet of snow on the ground, temperatures remain below freezing, and the Winter Snow Season ended (on the first day of Spring) just 1 inch short of the all-time record for heaviest snowfall ever.
The world is changing.
