If you are done with that cloud, you can push it on down the mountains!

I have a very big cloud that I would love to give you.  It stretches from horizon to horizon and it is leaking very badly at the moment.

Just finished watching a documentary hosted by David Suzuki about California's drought.

I feel for you,  It really brought it  home to me  the plight that you are in.Perhaps I will not joke about our leaking clouds and sending them to you. but I sure wish I could even out things for everyone in the world.

We have to joke about it, or we would cry.

The new drought monitor came out yesterday, and it shows that the northwest corner of the state is now officially out of the drought. The borderline is about 20 miles northwest of us. They're predicting 6 days of rain in our area, starting Sun/Mon. Fingers crossed that will pull us out, too.  geek

We're expecting 4 more days of it. Drought Monitor extended the "no drought" line northeast of us, but we're still in the "Abnormally Dry" area. We're going to break the record for the wettest October ever, so I'm sure? that next week we'll be completely clear of all drought conditions (please, please  bounce ).

Nice soaking rain all night.  We only need about 50-100 more of these kinds of nights!

My local friend's weather station showed 1.78" from this storm, doing the happy "rain" dance Laughing

NO MORE DROUGHT FOR OUR AREA! The white area in the upper left corner is drought-free! I live in the lower right corner of that section. Last week we were still yellow (abnormally dry). 2 years ago, we were that awful dark red (exceptional drought). Last year we moved up to "severe." Now we're completely FREE! Sadly, our good fortune hasn't moved down to the rest of the state, but maybe their luck will improve soon, too. Sad

CC, happy for you and your area, and I also hope for more white and lighter colours to spread throughout California.

How is "drought" decided? I live in the "boot," at the top of the foot. Audrey lives in the "toe" area. I took this photo July 13, 2014 and things look the same now:

With a drought that severe i everything just brown and unprotected like that picture? Not talking about gardening. Is the water prices high?

No, that's a fallow farm field in the semi-arid central valley.  A 1/2 mile down the road there might be a vineyard, corn rows or fruit orchard.

On a drive last spring from the foothills towards the coast, I saw fields like that with dust devils blowing on them while the field across the road is planting a new orchard.  It all boils down to who has water rights and allocation and the giant political game of winners and losers.
