I shouldn't laugh, but check out the picture beside this article. The intermountain west is coming out of its drought with a vengeance. The home in this picture is not far from where we went to catch pollywogs on Memorial Day. Extra runoff in our valley goes to a place called Lake Quichapa, which has been dry since we moved here. Now it is about 50 square miles and up to 15 feet deep.
BTW: Our home is on the low dark green hills in front of the red hill.
