More California rains threaten Rose Parade, but cheer farmers

There are 2 comments on the Christian Science Monitor story from Dec 30, 2010, titled More California rains threaten Rose Parade, but cheer farmers. In it, Christian Science Monitor reports that:

Like many southern Californians at the moment, Mildred Filbert is conflicted about all the rain the region has gotten.

"It's good news, it's bad news and it's 'Que sera, sera' news," says the school teacher on break, buying a latte at a Sherman Oaks coffee shop. Five other patrons are staring up at black clouds beneath silver ones as a slight mist sprays the window.

The big question forecasters are asking is whether it will rain on Pasadena's iconic Rose Parade this Saturday and, less critically, the football game between Texas Christian University and Wisconsin. One and a quarter inches are forecast by Friday on top of record rains - " the wettest December since 1889 - " here all last week. The Weather Channel says it will be partly cloudy New Year's Day following a partly sunny Friday.

I know the Parade is a "Biggy" for many..Myself included..but REALLY, what is more important? A couple of pleasurable hours watching a parade, or the livelihood of our farmers.??.I think you get my point..
