No one knows better than your Department of Water Resources that “weather” and “climate” are not interchangeable. Still…
As a Holiday gift to the drought-weary, we will note, simply, that the news just now about water in the Southwest — especially from our neighbors to the coastal west — is pleasing. See here, here and here.
It doesn’t mean our tough water times are ending. It certainly doesn’t mean the long-term challenges facing the Lower Basin Colorado River users are resolved. But at this time of year, it is welcome news nonetheless.
It certainly enlivens our Holiday cheer. Happy Holidays, one and all!
