Moderate Drought, GMAFB
Apparently the Central Valley is either Abnormally Dry or in Moderate Drought. Ask the residents. No. And as expected those of us in the tiny kidney bean of red Extreme Drought are even more incredulous. Golfing this morning one sand trap was a lake and one fairway was partially under water. The region in red has already seen 2x normal rainfall and is expecting another half years' worth of precipitation over the next 36 hours. Power is not relinquished easily.
