Tut, tut, looks like rain.
– A. A. Milne, English author of Winnie-the-Pooh children’s books
While most of the country has been mired in endless snow storms, we are under siege as well: We have had only one rainstorm throughout fall and winter, with no forecast for rain in sight. The dreaded word – drought – is not being whispered anymore. We’ve tried to cut down on our water consumption, as much as parents of a teenager and pre-teenager can. Water conservation is surely around the corner.
Not only are we getting no rain whatsoever, but our temps have been warmer than our standard Bay Area summer temperatures. Today the temperature hit 70, and we’re told to expect more of the same for the foreseeable future.
It’s time for a rain dance. So put on your dancing shoes and boogie.
