Right now in San Francisco we are experiencing the most beautiful January ever. The rest of the country is a frozen block of ice, while Gov. Jerry Brown has just declared California in a drought emergency. Voluntary water rationing has been requested, and with no rain forecasted for 3 months, mandatory rationing seems certain. It appears likely that we'll burn for this come summer, but I have never, in the 18 years I've lived here, experienced such perfect weather.
