Rainy Days by the Bay
March has been wet and cold in the Bay Area. We have had 17 days of rain so far and with that some flooding and weather related problems. Up near Donner Summit in the Sierra's, almost 700 inches of snow has fallen. We could ski till mid August at this rate. Tide ebbing out the Gate will be much stronger when the snow starts melting. We found that out the hard way a few years ago. The water management folks are ecstatic as the reservoirs that hold our drinking water are almost full and the snowpack has not even begun to melt yet. This all bodes well for our great state as we have been behind in water deliveries for a handful of years. We should also have a banner year as far as wild flowers go. The hills are very green and spring like weather should arrive this weekend. If you are a bay area resident, make plans to get outside and play. You deserve it!
