Yes, we've had a few storms, and another one or more is on the way.  But we really do need a long wet winter this year.  Last year was way below normal, and things are just plain dry.

Take a look at this photo of Donnell Reservoir on the Stanislaus River, and you'll see what we mean.

  Dean Martin was right.  So was Bing Crosby.  Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

10,000 years since the last ice age, and the earth is slowly drying out again. Just wait and if you live long enough another ice age may come, then you'll be praying for sunshine and warmth.

We are having four days of soaking rains.  It is manna from Heaven in a place like Nevada.
