      below avg. overall temps, but we only received 1/2 our annual rainfall last year. This year, it is predicted that we may get approximately our normal, but temps in winter (our coldest month is Feb) will be colder.

      It's different everywhere, and the problem comes not just in temp but the combined temp, duration, rainfall, snowfall etc. for the particular area and that, in turn, changes both the natural and agricultural systems both flora and fauna.

      My heart breaks for what I know is coming our way. And to make matters worse, they keep approving more new development which makes matters worse AND sucks up national habitat.

      It's both heartbreaking and infuriating.

      It costs them fortunes if we try to act on it.
