And on Groundhog’s Day, too. California is in the midst of an awful drought. Not so bad for the humans, so far, but very threatening to agriculture, which will affect us eventually, and far more serious for wildlife and the environment.
We can only hope for an approximation of the Bill Murray movie. I’d be quite happy if we could wake up for many more mornings to the sound of rain falling.
The state is already planning to divert water from the delta formed by the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers, which will decimate wildlife, including the salmon run.
I already gather gray water for the garden, and this morning I poured a couple buckets around our rosebushes and some other plants, hoping to give them a good long drink, the poor parched things. Let it rain!
