A century ago, miners working in California’s Death Valley reported seeing boulders on the desert floor with long trails behind them — as if the stones had been pushed across the sand. But, despite 60 years of trying, no one ever saw what moved them. Now scientists think they have the answer: melting ice. (Photo: Sarah Kat/Flickr)

In 2011, water levels were high near the Enterprise Bridge over Lake Oroville. Now the lake is at 32 percent of capacity. Top photo, July 2011, by Paul Hames/California Department of Water Resources. Bottom photo, August 3014, by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images.
kqedscience : Uh, 2014, not 3014. Hopefully we'll be out of this drought by 3014.
oaktownbrown : No doubt we're in a terrible drought but, these water level pictures cannot be taken seriously unless it's known that they were taken on the same exact day in both years.
jamie.lea : This is a lake near my grandparents house, it's been slowly getting lower for the last 5 years. I'm sure more has influenced the drop in water level than the drought.

Using a modified flour sifter, Chris Tyhurst sprinkles a powder made from palm oil and hydrated lime on the reservoir in the Northern California town of Montague. The town is running out of water, and the powder is supposed to slow evaporation. (Daniel Potter/KQED)

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.
eyeramona : *run
