high...and dry

yep. california is in for some tough times ahead. just because there is a spigot somewhere doesn't mean there is water available to come out of it. 
as california moves deeper into its third year of drought, growers and representatives of local water districts called on gov. jerry brown to proclaim a drought emergency. it became a recurring issue at tuesday's meeting of the california board of food and agriculture.

"we are sounding the alarm on the behalf of the agriculture industry," said craig mcnamara, a walnut grower who serves as board president.

conserve california. our state needs us to.
