- Between Nov.-Jan., we received only .14 inches of rainfall.
- There is no snow pack.
- Drought decreases trees' natural resistance to beetles.
- The beetles infest the trees, which subsequently die--becoming even more fuel for fire.
Today, the flowering trees are all in bloom. The sunny, 70+ degree weather is really nice.
However, we fear a very serious fire season this year.
