You wouldn't say that if you were in Central California this year! We just had a 10 days of beautiful 70 degree weather (20's for you Celcius types) - perfect May weather, in fact; the cats loved it. But we are in the middle of a severe drought, and warm days means no snow, means no water for the cities. We are currently less than 85% of normal, and the "wet season" is half over. This water goes all over the state, to cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego, to the agricultural areas like the Central Valley. Even in good water years we have fights over who should get how much water. IN drought years? makes a Heortling feud look sedate.

I'm not going to discuss *why* books are on hold, as that is internal MD business at this point. Later? Who knows. Things might change in the schedule, or I might be able to discuss it, or the horse might learn to sing. (
