Is the recent precipitation enough?

I know there has been some sleepless nights amongst our local farmers about whether or not they will be able to irrigate the fields this growing season.   The chat around the town has been unmistakable.   Overheard at Fred Meyer a few days ago "There was 5 inches of snow in Chiloquin and 12 inches on Deer Mountain."   Very common conversations.

Some feel the decision has already been made and the recent return of winter is too little, too late.

Here is a small testament to the crazy spring.  Yes, the sun is beaming and yes, that is hail on the ground amongst the flowers.

 

Hopefully there will be plenty of things growing in the Basin this summer!

Hi Darlene,

I'm looking for a realtor for Chiloquin for someone I met.  I grew up around Tulelake/Klamath.  I'm sorry to hear the water issue is still plaquing the area.  I drove through a few years ago when almost nothing had been planted and it was heart-breaking (we were farmers at one time). 

Anyway, just wanted to say hello.
