You might remember my photo in the summer regarding the lack of a drop of water in the Fresno River.. Well with the rain it is finally running and bringing water to all the wild animals, trees and all that depend on it. It is beautiful to see and hear.. Smells wonderfully fresh, with all the green grass around.. It is a shame that water from the mountains gets diverted by old arrangements and that this will be bone dry in the summer because they Turn It Off.. Politically called diverting to other areas.. I think they are selling it.. and can not find out who.... hope they use it sparingly, because fish, animals and plants die when there is no water...So do our fruits, veggies, and Calif. Farms. Remember what the farms can't grow you can not eat.
