After a weeklong haitus, More Second Thoughts is back — under the same management.
Kicking off the week, a report from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration that might bring hope during the region's hottest streak of the year.
According to the NOAA, El Niño has arrived in the Pacific Ocean (remember, el niño is Spanish for "the niño"), and it's supposed to stick around for several months. That means California might get the wetter-than-normal winter it so desperately needs.
The blessing could be a curse in disguise. Because in California, if we're not worried about the drought and fallow fields, we're worried about our levees springing leaks that no Dutch boy could stanch.
