    Last year was not 'above average'.

    It was an historically average year.

    The west was dry before. We've had wet cycles and dry cycles. A warmer climate should actually give us more moisture not less. Warm air holds more moisture. But still has to cool to cross the mountains meaning that extra moisture falls as snow and rain in the mountains. Last year was the El Nino, that is always followed by a dry La Nina year.

    Hundreds of Scientists from around the world have stated Yes Global Warming is real.
    I highly doubt you've dedicated your life in studying the subject of Global Warming as these Scientists have.

    I don't know what you do for a living but unless your more qualified then NASA, have a PHD from Harvard, Oxford or another major institution of higher learning . You are not a credible source and cannot make the determination on the subject that Global Warming is no real.

    Mr Boris have a look at climate dot gov. The american west will feel global warming before the rest of the country. I have no doubt you won't have a look.

    And meanwhile in the Northeast it has been cold and wet this winter.

    There is no such thing as global warming.

    Two above average snow years in Utah followed by a below average snow year.

    That is not the new normal, that is a weather cycle.

    Often brown lawns need fertilizer more than water.
