It seems like the only time it wasn't raining, they had the Oroville dam evacuation going on. I was unable to leave my house as I knew they wouldn't allow me to return. As a result it has been 2 months and no prospecting. I have a very bad case of cabin fever!
Now for the good news, it should be a great year for finding gold. There has been enough water to move things around and cleanup the rivers. With all the runoff we have had, there should be more gold washed into the rivers. So I'm looking forward to the great year, even if it might get off to a late start with all the snow.
Now that its March, we should start getting a lot less rain. I don't know about you, but first weekend with no rain - I going treasure hunting!
