We planned a backyard wedding for my youngest daughter in early June of 1993, and it sprinkled rain! We never had rain of any kind in June. I remember the rainy season ending in March, or possibly a drop more in April?? On the May 2002 day we buried Bob, the rain came down and the winds howled. Since then, sprinkles of rain in June are no longer unusual. There was measurable rain in July, 2013 and 2015. I can't remember any such thing in the first 35 years I lived here.
Land is probably always moving, especially in earthquake country. I've been on the same property for over 50 years, and there are signs you can see that the land is shifting. Nothing extreme, and unless you've been here as long as I have, you might not take notice or have anything to compare. But I know the pattern of how the small cracks form, and lately I detect a slight change in the mountain both in appearance and in vegetation. All one can do is hope it falls within normal changes, and is not indicative of imminent major catastrophe.
What is causing it, I don't know, but I'm sure we are affected, just like everywhere else, by climate change.
