Fun Facts: The earth is 4.5 billion years old. Rainfall records are 124 years old. When we read statements like "the driest year on record", it means the driest year in 124 years. How many 124-year spans have there been on earth? 362.9 billion! Crisis creators use sensational headlines followed by "on record". Also, the statewide average for rain (every city north, south, east or west in CA) in October is 1.23". In 124 years of recordkeeping, California has been below 1.23", 71 times. California has been above 1.23", 53 times. Be careful of drought "crisis" predictions this early.
