    And despite the watersheds filling up and the snow pack breaking records they will still keep the water to the central valley turned off. Think they might be trying to get the farmers to move elsewhere?

    • crosspatch says:

      They already are moving. Many are finding it easier to lease land in Mexico and move their farming operations there.

  2. Rhys Jaggar says:

    Building the snowpack early in the winter is good news for Northern Californians!!

    This means that water from snowmelt next spring/early summer will be plentiful.

    We have normally fast speed internet but since last week it has been unusually slow day and night.

    The speed test shows it dropped severely.
