But there’s green! We have snow today….great panoramic shot.
Thank you. Yes on the green. When you’re not used to it, it is a bit overwhelming. California has had so little rain the hills have turned from golden to brown. Now they are beautifully green.
Snow well it’s pretty in pictures but a soon as I think about shoveling and driving in it. Well…..
Stay warm and NO slipping a sidewalks.
Those two are my goals! Went and dug out my boots with the good traction bottoms for when I venture out.
Looks like you’re getting some much needed rain now Tim.
Yes actually quite a bit. But not enough yet to put a big dent into the low water tables in the aquifers. Too much water has been pumped to support the agriculture in the Central Valley. Many wells have gone dry as the water table continues to drop. Not easy for those that have no water to bath and cook. We’re okay in the SF Bay Area but conservation efforts are enforce.
I’d gladly ship some of our rain your way!
Yes, that would be good. A report this morning indicated that the biggest reservoir in Northern California, Mt Shasta is below 1/3 full. Once the ground becomes saturated the run off will fill the reservoirs fairly quickly. To replenish the aquifers it would take 50 years of normal rains. A little extra help would be appreciated.
C’est vraiment beau ! I like it.
beautiful clouds! The snow has just started to settle in here in the UK!
Thank you. I’m pleased we don’t have snow here in the San Francisco Bay Area. It would be a bit difficult to drive on some of the hills in the city. The cable cars might have a time of it as well. Snow can be beautiful.
