While many Americans have suffered through an unusually cold winter, out in California, it’s sunny and clear. Yesterday, it was a ridiculous 91 degree in San Luis Obispo. Yes, it’s hot. And it’s dry. California Governor Jerry Brown has declared a drought emergency and called on residents to cut water use by twenty percent.

+ I know it’s hard for folks in the rest of the country to feel bad that Californians are getting too much sun. Especially since the polar vortex is coming back.
