I think they say our water source lake is down 50% and that was because of little rain in 2011. While we got moderate rain in 2012 the lake only went up a very small amount. Water for rice farming downstream from us was cut off and will stay off this year. We are on a restricted once a week watering with small numbers of hours. The greenes took advantage of the situation and watering restrictions will remain for a long time. Water prices are around $300 per month across the 8 months we water.

On better note we got some of the rain the last couple days...projected to be 6" but won't even be close to that, unless something cuts lose tonite.
