Agua Por Favor / by Brett Holman

According to Governor Jerry Brown, California is possibly facing the worst drought in the last 100 years. Although it's a sad state of affairs for the state, I've finally been able to thaw out and get warm and be comfortable. This last week in California has been some of the most pleasant weather I've experienced in awhile. Today I played outdoors appreciating that bright warm "light" in the sky after experiencing grey, cold, rainy, snowy, or muggy weather conditions for months on end. Michigan weather was never ever just pleasant enough to enjoy the entire week. I desperately want rain for the Golden State but I'm enjoying every football throw and frisbee toss at the moment. Let the rain dancing begin.
