This Record Breaking Dry Spell

California is in a very dry pattern right now. Maybe its' because of Global Warming, maybe el Nino. It's comical to me that the Newscasters love for it to be record setting something or other. When rainy season started a little early everyone was stressing about flooding and our levees. Memories of Katrina were fresh and the temptation was too great to cry wolf. Well now we have a lot of dry weather so they are working away on the levees but everyone is just about ready to whip out the D word. It has been maybe 15 years since our last serious droughts but I guess we got spoiled. I know the jet stream could shift and all the storms could come right at us like the last few years and then we could worry about flooding again. I think Arnold's prayers for some dry weather to dial in our levees has been answered and for that we should be thankful.
