“So far Californians as a whole have cut back water consumption by more than 25 percent every month since Gov. Jerry Brown put that mandate into effect last June,” The Associated Press stated in a story. “Statewide cutbacks amounted to 27 percent in August, 31 percent in July and 27 percent in June.”

5. Lake Tahoe’s ski season kicks off this week. Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe opened Wednesday, and Boreal Mountain Resort is set to open Friday, Nov. 6.

According to Kevin MacMillan of North Shore’s Sierra Sun, “Like Mt. Rose and several regional ski resorts, Squaw-Alpine plans to utilize cold temperatures to make snow. The resorts still are planning opening days of Nov. 25 (Squaw) and Dec. 11 (Alpine). South of Lake Tahoe, Sierra-at-Tahoe resort reported as much as 9 inches had fallen by Monday evening at its base area.”
