Can Eli have Ethon back? Roger is at it again.

UPDATE: As the bunny said over at Volokh given that California ag is critically dependent on snowpack, as the CA water resources board says:

One of the most critical impacts for California water management may be the projected reduction in the Sierra Nevada snowpack – California’s largest surface “reservoir.” Snowmelt currently provides an annual average of 15 million acre-feet of water, slowly released between April and July each year. Much of the state’s water infrastructure was designed to capture the slow spring runoff and deliver it during the drier summer and fall months. Based upon historical data and modeling, DWR projects that the Sierra snowpack will experience a 25 to 40 percent reduction from its historic average by 2050. Climate change is also anticipated to bring warmer storms that result in less snowfall at lower elevations, reducing the total snowpack.


it ain't gonna be a bowl of cherries. The linked white paper is interesting on many grounds

Good pub, the Eagle and Child...

Ethon, being a bird of great appetite, has wiped his beak and moved on. I suspect he may be on the way over to a happy hunting ground of his...

(Though he may lurk in dark corners, waiting on events in Scotland. He does dearly love a haggis.)

When Eli was young, he mostly drank across the street at the Lamb and Flag, but, come to think about it, the Bird and Baby does have a Rabett Room (with allowance for ye olde Brit spelling)

Thanks for a reminder of good times.

The Bird & Baby was convenient for a number of women's colleges, as I recall. Good place for a lunchtime tryst or two - or it was 30 years (aargh!) ago.

Does this mean that the father bans the son from his blog? :)

If you want cherries, you pick them yourselves.
