Our rainfall here is looking very good for the first six weeks of the year, more than double the average and way ahead of what it's been during the drought. The oldtimers say it looks like a setup for a wet year, the kind we've only had about three times in 50+ years. Not a lot of beekeeping here in the desert compared to other places, but I'm thinking that if it turns out to be really wet then this would be the year to have plenty of bees here. If you've never seen the west bloom in a really wet year it would be worth a few days in the spring to see it. Doesn't happen often, but when it does it's spectacular. How do you westerners think it's shaping up for you this year?
