On a recent day in the San Joaquin Valley, the rain falling outside was cause for celebration for Aaron Fukuda.
“For us, water is a mood,” Fukuda, president of the Tulare Irrigation District, said over the phone.
As a third consecutive dry year sets in on California, drought has become a source of stress and anxiety for farmers and communities. But rain brings happiness. If only the rain came more often, Fukuda stated.
