billy did you get some rain?

i sure keep hoping that the rains do come along soon for you out there.
we're still getting some snow, the forecast is that coming up next week we might have at least three days in a row with highs above 30F. a heat wave!
i feel sorry for all those in the south who are getting another taste of the winter snow/ice and mixed crud.
at least up here we know what we're getting into each year. or at least we think we know. :)
now, someone tell me, where are the bunny eaters or coywolves at? nothing here is looking like it is doing much. the bunny population will certainly need thinning come spring. cute little buggers. *sigh*

We got about 7" over 5 days, but most of that was in the North Bay. The mustards came up quickly, giving the county some normal early year color. The ranchers are starting to unwind a little. They were wound up pretty tight when no rain fell to grow pasture, and they were having to buy feed. We are now about 40% of normal (9") for the year, and we are supposed to get a little more this week, but not the gully washer that last weeks storm gave us.
Reservoir flows to the Russian River have been cut, and water conservation may impact local vineyards if they need to draw water from the river for frost control. Large fans have become popular, but in a hard frost, there is nothing like sprinklers.
Hope springs eternal, and I may yet have a garden this year.
Sorry to hear about your cute little varmints. It's not as bad as the story about the 2 yr. old giraffe that was killed at a Belgium zoo, and then feed him to the lions. <http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2555079/Danish-zoo-kills-young-g iraffe-deemed-surplus-feeds-lions.html>

ah, good to hear, i certainly would not want to be a rancher out there, even the grass fed farmers with deep sod would still have some trouble if the drought goes on for years.

yeah, i saw that one in the headlines... i'm of mixed opinions, as once you get into zoos and zookeeping those with the most land restriction are going to be close to feedlot conditions for most of the herbivores. this was at least somewhat of a natural progression of a normal food chain for giraffe and lion. so was it gardening for lions from the lion's perspective? :)
