    until at least january, and really not until we're out of snow season and we have some sense of the snowpack. at best, we have had a somewhat dry fall with some carryover from the existing drought. the coming "atmospheric river" is unlikely to help much with the snowpack given the high projected snow line of 7,000', but it should help to refill the reservoirs and rivers (and if it stays very long, could actually lead to flooding once it saturates the ground).

    in wet years and dry, they've stolen water from the salmon and sold it to westlands and socal. this lack of water isn't caused by lack of rain so much as excessive pumping.

      hope it's spread out enough not to make a muddy mess, especially in mj grow operations where environment is not respected, water is stolen, dirt pushed into the creeks.

        and really wet and intense where it's strongest. those huge burn scars from the fires up in lassen and plumas counties this summer are going to be a huge mess.
