Apparently I didn't miss anything in the way of global events recently. Our mountains are still here, dry as they are. If the end of the world happened, nobody noticed it around here.
Sadly, it is so dry very few flowers are blooming, so the resident hummingbirds have hit the feeders hard. There is almost no water running in our creeks, and the blue herons quickly cleaned out any trout that still had a small pool to swim in.
