Weird, wonderful, wrong weather

And there's no end to the summery weather this January

And there’s no end to the summery weather this January (degrees Celsius)

It’s dry, warm and sunny in California at the moment. The trouble is that it’s the rainy season and the strange absence of wet weather presages water shortages. One of Northern California’s reservoirs is just 18% full, and there’s been hardly any snowfall in Lake Tahoe. And this is the third dry winter in a row! In fact, it’s the driest year since San Francisco started keeping records during the Gold Rush in 1849.

It’s not good for agriculture (some marijuana farmers in the very north of the state have already been forced to abandon their crops!) or people, but while it lasts, we’re enjoying the unseasonably warm, wonderful, wonky weather.

Sunrise from our deck one morning this week. Maybe the glorious colours are a side-effect of the current rainlessness.
