I hope not. Growing up in socal, and living in the IE where you add smog, the worse in the country, and the every blowing Santa Ana winds... I'm used to the last couple summers. Substitue a somewhat greater humidity for the smog and I do my normal hibernation next to the AC.

I'm hoping for a La Nina too. The year we had one following El Nino there, we had so much rain it literally ruined most of the stuff on the patio since it never got to dry out and the yard was a soggy mess. Since my grass here now is just starting to regrow (the lawn died) any rain we get is certaily welcome.

Refer to my post on the Oklahoma Weather thread. El Nino pretty much fizzled, we are in a classic 1930's style drought that I guess could last until the next big El Nino which is often characterized by above normal rainfall. My best guess looking at all the analogues from years past (years with similar weather patterns), is that this could last until about 2014 before we begin to break out of this, but some drought cycles have been recorded as lasting up to 10 years (1890's, 1910-1918) are examples. Woe to us if it's one of those!
