W is for. . .

April 2015, Cienega Road

Water. More specifically, the lack of water.  Essentially, drought!

California officials mark the beginning of our drought as 2012. They report that Winter 2015 has been the driest year in the state's recorded history.  It's very evident when you see the hills and mountains surrounding Hollister. If it weren't for the cooler temperatures, I'd think it was August.

Check out how Hollister has looked in April over the past few years.

April 2014, Southside Road
