This drought just got real.

People are eternally optimistic. That's why when you tell them we are in a critical water shortage - they say "oh, we have the Spring rainy season still".

Well, California is now at the stage that the air is so dry that if a small Spring shower might come - it evaporates before it hits the ground. The April showers bring May flowers optimism will be coming to an end very shortly. In a way that is sort of like hitting a wall.

This is the time of year where wildflowers are dotting the hills if you look close. But they took a huge turn in the last couple of days. I think by the end of the week the hills will be brown again. You can kinda see the high pressure bubble on this vapor loop. It's basically the dark area between Hawaii and Baja. All the storms are basically hitting it and going straight up to Washington/Alaska.

It's going to be a crazy summer. Super crazy. I predict you get a lot of fire pictures this summer. Last year we only had two major fires in my area. And that was a good year.
