    Hi Larry

    Sounds nice! That drought thing  there seems pretty wild, even by CA standards. Someone once said that CA will never be without a drought. I believe it. I'll tune in.

    You're right!

    It's dry.  In Monterey, where I am, we got about 4.5" last year.  Normal is around 15".  Snow-pack is at 12% of normal and reservoirs are around 10-30% of normal.  

    Coming up next week is a show on water and creative ways of using less ... finding more.  The talk of earth closets should be fun!  :~)

    Yours,  Larry
