This just in:

In super-dry 2015, compared to a normal water year, California agriculture is on track to use 2.5 million acre-feet less water, fallow 560,000 acres, employ 18,600 fewer people and contribute $2.7 billion less to the state’s overall economy.

  2. I wish I could send you some of our rain!

  3. California is being proactive, it seems. That’s good news. 🙂
