Well, we do need the rain, and with luck it may help with the gopher problems. I went out this morning and dug up a number of gopher trails, hopefully
if it rains hard, it will drown their tunnels. Ever since the cedar Fires, gophers and rabbits have been a problem: the lack of ground cover devasted
the snake populations here, exposing them to hawks and owls, which resulted in a population explosion of rodents.
It got so bad the last few years I dug up whole plots and lined them with steel mesh to kep the critters out.
