We've been worried for some time now about the weather patterns in California.  We seem to always need more rain and snow, and yet....
If you remember our post from a couple of weeks ago, you'll remember how little snow there was on the ground, even at the very crest of the sierra.   That's our photo at right.  grim.

Turns out that other people are watching from the skies, as well.  And they are using this information to do a better job of managing water resources throughout the winter and spring, so that we might still have water next summer.
That's a good thing.  Right now, we need all the help, and rain, and snow, we can get!
