- The stupendous man-made reservoirs of far Northern California are now essentially empty, something that's never happened since I've lived here: Dramatic Photos of California's Historic Drought
- And the fall fire season is upon us, with a vengeance: Yosemite fire near Half Dome forces airlifting of 85 people

Something's gotta give, and it's gotta start happening soon.
