Less than an inch of rain in the past five weeks
This year started off really good with ten inches of rain in December alone, but then the rain just about stopped, and January and February are supposed to be the rainiest months. Looks like the La Nina predictions of another drought year were right except for the freak December storms.
The weather reports predict no rain for the next five days so my hopes for a really good year for my fruit trees is slowly fading.
But my Kumquat tree is loaded with the biggest, sweetest tasting fruit it ever made thanks to the December rain.
