That's the meteorological explanation: a ridge of high pressure over the West Coast that has been blocking weather from the Pacific, driving it north, leaving the entire West Coast in drought.

  1. Kit,
    I don’t see a way to PM you from here, otherwise I would. Regarding our conversation Saturday, I have info on a simple and accurate way to measure our water wells. I checked ours and its not as bad as I feared it might be. Email me if you want the details.
