It has been an unusually hot and dry spring here in the Capay Valley. The rain, which usually occurs from January until the end March, never really materialized. There have been many beautiful sunny, warm and cloudless days this spring. We valley dwellers have even endured a few of those oppressively hot 100-degree days. That kind of heat usually does not set in until late June.
