Looking dry, California. KQED's @dbrekke12 took this picture of a ranch along California Highway 41, east of Paso Robles in San Luis Obispo County.
eyeramona : Yup near Shandon. Used to live out there. Shandon actually has a couple secret springs that rub year round.

That El Niño that was supposed to ease California's drought is looking less likely. This graphic from NASA JPL shows there's less warm water (shown in red) in the Pacific than there was just a few months ago.

Workers at Drakes Bay Oyster Farm in Point Reyes pile up oyster grow bags for storage. Today is the last day of retail operations at the oyster farm, though wholesale will continue for a few more months. The National Park Service ordered the farm to close after years of court battles. (Cy Musiker/KQED)

Emir Dunn is one of about 4,000 inmates in California who help the state fight wildfires. They get paid $2 a day. Dunn says, the food is better than in prison, and there's a little more freedom. There's a video and more about the program at KQED.org/science. (Adam Grossberg/KQED)
