Life goes on. And so does the rain. We'll be crossing the Sacramento River in a little while when we go to Chico this morning and I'm looking forward to seeing just how much water is coming downstream. One hopes that they are saving a little of that water in Shasta Lake.(Photo stolen from here...)

The Sacramento River watershed is very difficult to manage as a certain amount of water, by law, has to flow into the Delta and out to the ocean. The water keeps salt water from advancing into the Delta and getting into municipal water supplies. And a certain amount, by law, must be sent south to keep Southern Californians green and happy. And a certain amount, by law, must be used to support riparian habitat. And…whatever is left is ours to do with as we please.

But, in the meantime, it's raining and more is forecast for the weekend.
