This weekend's rain came just as California was, and maybe still is, heading into a 500 year drought. More rains are forecast in a few days. With our parched soils temporarily remoistened, and perhaps some of our wells and springs recharged, will we quickly forget that we are living in a semi-arid desert? Will the Ridiculously Resilient Ridge that has been keeping winter storms from reaching our area reestablish itself and return us to the drought soon? And if so, what does that mean for our way of life, for our food supply, for nature and the earth? And what can we do about it?

I'll share an update on the drought, some water saving ideas from Brad Lancaster, the master rainwater harvester, some water saving ideas for home and gardens and music about water and rain. And I invite you to call in and share your story. How has the drought this winter impacted you and your neighbors?
