It’s raining

People are talking about the impact of global warming, the bitter cold in the Northeast and the warmer temperatures out West. Well folks we are finally getting some much needed rain here in California where it is dry and our ground is parched. Is the entire state getting a good drink of water? No, it never seems to rain in the entire state at one time, but at least here in Northern California our vineyards and some of the fields where you get your rice, oranges, tomatoes, and other vegetables it is getting a good soak.

I know it is nothing like what the Northeast is/has been experiencing, but it is something. Having grown up in Lake Tahoe I know all too well what winter will bring in the form of a snow storm. I’ve trudged through snow and sleet to get to a bus stop because school hasn’t been cancelled. I’ve been stuck in a snow bank, and I’ve shoveled my fair share of snow from driveways. It is part of winter. The Northeast may be getting hit over and over with storms but look how many times the West was hit with storms a while back? It’s part of a cycle. I’m happy right now that we are getting some rain. We need it.

Nature is doing its thing.
