Photo of the week: Californian winter

Foto der Woche

I was anticipating this week’s “Foto der Woche”-series already with a lot of excitement and I can’t wait to take a peek at all the other ‘happy moments’  that people captured on camera this week. Fee and Juli have collected all the links to the weekly photos on a Pinterest board which will make it really easy and convenient to keep track of all the beautiful work that is presented each week through this project. If you’re a Pinterest addict already, make sure you add this board to your collection!

Photo of the week: Californian winter

The American River (taken on January 14, 2014)

This is what our Californian winter looks like right now. It sure is pretty, but what you can’t see is that the water level of the river is low. Really low. We’re currently paying for this gorgeous January weather with historical low water levels in our rivers and the Sierra snow pack (which is a huge water resource for the state of California). We usually get a lot of rain here in Northern California during the winter months, but the last two winters have been uncharacteristically dry. Not good.

  1. Hey,

    das ist ein wirklich schönes Foto! Ich bin mir sicher ihr genießt das schöne Wetter… Trotzdem wünsche ich euch, dass ein wenig Niederschlag kommt, damit das nicht zu einem größeren Problem für Kalifornien wird!

    Liebe Grüße von Judith,
    (die sich fragt, wie du das “Glück” hattest nach Amerika auszuwandern ;))

  2. oh love this picture, so very much sums up what winter in california is like right now, ha.

  3. I have heard that it is super dry in Northern CA lately – I Hope you get some rain soon!! We have had a decent amount here lately – I wish I could send it your way!

  4. I wish that I could you give you some the wet that the East Coast has experienced lately. Everything is damp over here and the ground is squishy.

    Beautiful photo, by the way!
