It’s raining, it’s pouring and yes…the old man is snoring!

We are facing severe drought conditions here in California – the local news mentioned it would have to rain here in Northern California every day, at least an inch, for the next two-three months to catch up to what our reserves were back in the fall. It is very concerning and everyone is beginning to be mindful of their water usage, voluntarily at this point; however, if we don’t get some huge snowstorms and lots and lots and lots of rain, we will all be on mandatory rationing. We live within 10 miles of Folsom Lake here in Northern California, and it has changed, to say the least. Here are a couple of comparison photos to get the “visual” point. But on a positive note – IT IS RAINING!!!!

About thehookedhaberdasher

I was blessed with two dear Grandmothers who were wonderfully gifted and loved all the arts of handcrafting. At their knee, a wee little blonde girl learned the fine art of crochet under their wise and talented tutelage. Now that little girl has grown up and enjoys a lifestyle that affords me the time to put hooks, yummy yarns and fibers back into my hands, returning to the joy and fun of the art of handcrafted crochet. I am awed by the talent and creative patterns of modern new designers, but still enjoy the beauty of vintage patterns as well. My mind and hands are never idle, designing and handcrafting stylishly beautiful, practical, cozy, comfy, sweet and cute wearables and loveables for old and young alike. As a very detail oriented artist, I design and crochet with love, embracing the virtues bequested to me by those two beautiful Grandmothers.

  1. We are hoping for snow and rain too Wendy… Mt Shasta is virtually bare and our lakes are empty too… Not much rain in the forecast…
