im thinking of making a trip to the mtns to see whats going on. we've had more rain this season but its still a low amount.
kikaida, if youre not gonna be in socal searching anymore, i'd be willing to go search the spots youve found them in before ;D
gersey, i havent been up yet, im looking to head up soon. its just been so hard to determine when to go this year, last year we were having long warm spells, then a quick cold snap that froze and killed everything so ive been waiting to see if theres another one coming, apparently not. i live in the high desert in hesperia if you know where that is. if you want to try foraging in the mountains and are able to, im down to go searching with you.
and synch, i havent yet, im making my first trip up this week some time.
im just hoping im not too late, the weather here has been horrible. everything is confused as fk by the weather, trees are budding and blooming a full month early. we are constantly 10-20 degrees higher than usual....and its not just a hot spell its been warm all winter. we only hit freezing temps for like two weeks and it was barely freezing. we usually get our coldest temps down around 15-20f degrees in jan/feb but its been floating around 40 for the low.
...and to top everything off, NASA just got done telling us that california only has a year left for water supply with no plans to increase it. our best plan is "hoping and praying for rain"....which is straight up fcking bullsht, our own govt has admitted for decades that we can control weather - kill, steer, enhance and/or create hurricanes even.
its not a coincidence that meteorologists predict 3 days of rain coming in 10 days then suddenly right before the storm hits land, all the water either drops in the ocean or it breaks up and dissipates.....to ALL of our storms. the few that we have had, those were supposed to be huge storms(as predicted aweek or two prior) that all so conveniently broke up and weakened to a storm that lasted a few hours.
