The California Weather
I know Californians usually bask in sunshine, but of late, the Golden State has experienced real climate horror. First, there has been a prolonged drought that devastated farming. Now, America's most populous state is suffering through seemingly unending rains. These torrents are causing localized flooding and potentially deadly mudslides. High straight line winds have blown down trees and damaged roofs. It seems Californians face one weather extreme or the other, drought or flood, with no safe middle like much of the rest of the Lower Forty-eight.
