Dry, hot California winter closes ski resorts, stalls wildflower blooms and revives drought fears

In the Sierra Nevada, snowpack levels are running below even the darkest days of the drought, with cross-country ski resorts closed and mountain biking becoming the sport of choice until the snow returns.

Happily our water is artesian so drought is rarely a worry. It turns out that you can get useful amounts of artesian water from beneath one of the driest parts of England (16.9 inches of rain annually) because it's sparsely inhabited. The rain it does get sinks obligingly down through the sandy soil into the chalk layers beneath.
