Almine continues to express her gratitude to her lightfamily all over the world who are working on reversing long-standing global drought conditions. We are happy to provide a few updates on the promising rain and snowfall that has been happening in the US recently (we also receive a lot of email informing us of rain in snow in many locations outside of US).
The arrival of winter rain and heavy snows in the mountain areas including the Sierra Nevada range, has brought a welcome question: Is the drought that has plagued many areas of the world over? A New York Times article of January 13, 2106 states: “No question California has turned a corner… There was more rain in Los Angeles in December than since the drought began.” This statement is even more heartening, “In terms of surface water, most of California is no longer in drought.”
“Storms ease California drought as reservoirs fill up,” shouts Metro.us in a recent headline.
Ten to 12 feet of snow in Bend, Oregon was reported last week and The Orange County Register shares with its readers, “Whether continued rainfall will pull Southern California out of the drought is the million dollar question”…a National Weather Service spokesman said “it might take 2-3 years of rain to restore pre-drought conditions”. But he also said this: “It looks promising. A good reference is January of 2008 – that was the last snowiest January. The Sierras have already passed that.”
