California Drought 2014 – Did You Know?

Did you know that California is in “possibly” the worst drought in recorded history?  I didn’t.  Our water company hasn’t sent any literature or notifications with the bill and I don’t read the news online or watch it on TV, so I’ve missed any notifications there.

Snow pack at 10-30% in California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range.

NPR has an article with pictures of Folsom dam at 17% of its capacity.  The photo above shows the the snow pack in the Sierra Nevada 10-30% of what we need.

Though I won’t be able to plant much in the flower beds this year, I can still plan what will go in when we have the budget.  I’ll share what I learn about drought tolerant plants.
