When is Enough Too Much?

You may recall late last year and back in January when I was writing about all of the rain we were getting in the San Francisco Bay Area. Much needed rain, I might add, given that we’ve been in an extreme drought in the area for a number of years. I had the nerve to complain about all the rain we were getting because it was an inconvenience, especially when it came to walking our dog in the pouring rain, which it did for about three weeks straight.

After that, we had a few days of dry weather before we got more rain. And more rain. And even more rain through much of February. March started out sunny and clear, though, and I was looking forward to some nice, dry weather. But today the rain returned, and it’s forecast to continue through Friday.

Hey, I’m thrilled that we can finally put this drought that has been plaguing the area behind us. But come on, when it comes to rain, seriously, when is enough too much?

    We’re being told in SoCal that the drought is partially over — partially because it takes longer for the ground water to be replenished! We have heard all along that it will take a few more years like this one to accomplish that, and we traditionally only get one year like this one before the weather reverts to drought producing levels of rain!

      Up here in NoCal we’re being told we’ve gone from extreme drought to moderate drought and more heavy snow is falling in the Sierra mountains and elevations above 2,300 feet this week. But, yes, it’s better but we’re not totally out of the woods yet.

    Someday, maybe scientists and engineers can figure out how to get excess rain from one region of our country to an area that needs it, and it be cost effective. One can hope…
