All Hail The Vernal Equinox!

Wow, lots to address today.

First, how did you do on the exam on Saturday? The State of California requests that you do not share the actual questions with anyone. However, I don’t think they would mind if you shared with us any areas of surprises. Were there any questions that you just did not expect that showed up on the exam? If so, would you share with us the general area/topic of those questions?

And if you’ve taken one of my review classes, would you please help me out? Did the review class help much? Were there areas that I over-emphasized or under-emphasized, based on your exam experience on Saturday?

If you have any guidance for us along these lines, please post a Comment below, or send me an e-mail at Your help is greatly appreciated!

Next, today is the first full day of Spring, also known as the Vernal Equinox. Today’s photo is one you may have seen before on this blog: Vernal Falls in Yosemite National Park.

The California weather does not appear especially Spring-like today. In many parts of the state we witnessed the wettest 24-hour periods on record! That’s more what we expect to see in January or February — our wettest months. But March is our third wettest month, so it’s not completely crazy. We occasionally see some “April Showers,” too. And that is why May 1 is such an important date in California water: it’s the official end of the rain season.

I owe you a water storage update. Expect one later this week. A quick preview: it’s still improving — no surprise there, I suppose!

Anyway, Happy Spring!
