    No. They're in a drought because of global warming.

    This sounds like the folks in Oroville and downstream had better head for high ground. I hope the dam holds.

    Lubbock, TX was 91 yesterday. High is supposed to be 38 tomorrow.

    Wonky weather all over. Trump is to blame.

    And, of course, everyone is fleeing south to Sacramento. . .

    Good luck to anyone caught up in this. It's been quite a winter.

    I hope the residents there will heed the warnings being given.

    We've all seen it time and time again where authorities say it's time to evacuate due to some emergency, and they hold out to the last minute.

    Best of luck to all concerned.
