Possibility of More Drought in CA Disastrous for Golf Courses

The El Nino weather pattern that was expected to bring vast amounts of rain to the state this fall and winter has been downgraded by the Climate Prediction Center, a National Weather Service agency, The CPC report said there's still a 60 to 65 percent likelihood that an El Nino will develop, but that "a majority of models and the multi-model averages favor a weak El Nino." "If we have another drought year, I think the implication will really be disastrous," Vaughn Kezirian, executive director of the Northern California Golf Association, said on Friday.

California nudist camp accused of stealing water

The San Jose Mercury News reports that rangers with the Midpeninsula Open Space District descended on Lupin Lodge near Los Gatos on Thursday, saying the clothing-optional resort was illegally taking water from a nearby upstream waterfall. The resort's owners say they are entitled to use the waterfall, which they need to keep their water tank full in case of a fire and to top off their pool for both skinny-dipping and as a backup water source for a fire.

In Drought, "Pop-Up" Wetlands Provide Bird Habitat

For the swirling flock of migrating shorebirds banking to a landing in California's Central Valley, a recently flooded rice field is providing a new kind of triage station during a drought that's drastically reducing places where they can rest on their long journeys. The new arrivals to the field - hundreds of them - are dowichers, says conservationist Greg Gulot, standing on a dirt berm and focusing his binoculars to identify a wading bird that is one of the first to fly south in an annual migration that brings 350 species to California's Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys.
