(Driving to the mountains, first week of January 2007) Thank heavens our cold snap is ending. Agricultural produce has suffered the most with these cold days and freezing nights. The California citrus industry is losing millions. According to reports, 2/3 of their produce is lost because of the frosty conditions.
In the mountains, only dusting of snow can be seen. They have found that the snow pack is 60% of normal. We need more snow in the Sierra because snow in the Sierra means water in the Bay Area in the summer time.
It was in the teens, temp-wise, on this day; but no snow.
