Why is Folsom Lake drying up? Why is California in the midst of the state’s most serious drought in sometime? Why have California (and the entire West Coast of the US) been having one of the mildest winters on record while the rest of the country is having one of the most severe? (There were questions up until just a couple days ago as to whether the Super Bowl would be played today) And why does Rush Limbaugh believe that the term “Polar Vortex” was invented just for him? Maybe entirely separate questions with totally unrelated answers, but I don’t think so.
