We had some more good rain this weekend. It was a huge storm but most of the precipitation came down up north. The Sierra got as much as 10 feet of snow! The state really needs it.
The aftermath in the Santiago Fire burn area relates to the green grass that is growing in profusion all over the hills. Well, “all over” is something of an overstatement and here’s the interesting observation. Where there was grass before the fire, these areas are covered in lush, vibrant green. But where there was chaparral before the fire the ground is bare. I suppose that makes sense. That seems to be one of those things where when you know the answer, the answer is pretty obvious.
