La Niña misses SoCal, hits Sun Belt

As we've been discussing over the last few months, this past year's La Niña has been a bust in Southern California. What was expected to be a dry winter with winds and heat turned out to be a wet, blustery winter with massive Sierran snowpack. 

But not so across the U.S! As the NY Times reported yesterday, across the rest of the Southwest and deep into the Sunbelt and the South, this has been a classic La Niña episode, a huge drought that experts are now comparing to the Dust Bowl.
