    • We’re just going to have endure the summer and hope we have enough water for our cattle. We’re already checking our depleting stock water once a week. This is the fourth year of drought, unprecedented in the recorded history of California — new ground for man and beast. No real rain expected until November.

  2. I pray for an early El Nino to hit late September or October. Hard to imagine what a 5th year would be like.
