We're in the midst of a horrendous drought here in Central California so we're battling dust under frustratingly, brilliant blue skies and crisp, spring like weather. That sounds great for most of you on the east coast, but we're pretty worried about what we'll be drinking if the rains don't come soon.
You see, after about March, California has a natural drought cycle that doesn't end until about November; we call it summer. Unfortunately, that naturally dry season hasn't really ended for the past few years so our normal drought season has been really long.
Not that that has anything to do with our busy barn day except for the fact that I did a ton of sweeping to remove the heavy pile of dust from our tack room and feed storage area.
