Looks like the drought continues. We have bare ground outside now and we are below average for snow water equivalent. Our tests last summer doing extremely intensive sheep grazing helped us keep the sheep out on pasture longer than we expected. Given the state of the reservoir this year we’ll be doing the same thing again. There is still time for more snow. We usually get a lot of wet storms in February and March. I hope we do again this year.
