Here in drought-stricken Northern California, it has been raining for the last couple of days! We've not seen a drop for almost two months in the middle of what is usually our rainy season. The reservoirs are at 13% to 15% of usual and the outlook is not good for farmers or water suppliers for urban areas. Whatever moisture we get between October and April, with January and February being the heaviest months, is usually it for the year, so we are so far behind! Look for nuts, fruits and veggies to be very expensive this year.
Bye-the-bye, on another topic, is anybody but me noticing the racing bibs on skiers and snowboarders at the Winter Olympics in Russia? They appear to be a bright diamond patchwork pattern. I'm sure just a print, but has the appearance of quilt piecing. Very striking!
