What needs to happen next is for some intrepid C-D posters to figure out how to assign blame for the weather situation on either side of the political spectrum.

Well, it's already kind of happening - at least in terms of politicos in an election year. Oh, the joys that await in 2014.

So...California has been in the worst drought in the state's history, even gaining national press about its possible long-term ramifications if it continues, and now the drought situation is suddenly improving? I know at least in SoCal that we haven't had any rain.

This is like saying that the California economy is getting better. It is...if you work in tech in the Bay Area or real estate in Orange County. That's also like saying that California is on its way to financial insolvency...while we know that the Democrats in charge in Sac-town are blowing the newly-generated revenue surplus money by raising taxes on the wealthy who create jobs.

Sorry, I can be socially liberal, but not fiscally/economically liberal. I just can't.

Well, the thread is from 2010, when this article was published:

All that rant wasted because you didn't check the original post date.

We had about 8" of snow in early December, and it was very cold until after the first. None since, but it's coming tomorrow according to our weatherman. Right now is almost 60 outside which is 10+ above normal for us. Gotta love those Nasa video's though. The one of the Rim fire was pretty cool even if I was wearing a respirator outside at the time.

The drought situation improved in 2010 when this thread was originally made.

This is crazy, not just because of the snow but look carefully at the valley. You can see it's greener in 2013 as well as the coast. the whole state in 2014 is very dry.
