Lake Oroville, the second largest reservoir in California, is releasing water from it's spillway for the first time in five years. Lake Oroville is at 84% capacity, the release is ordered by the Army Corps of Engineers in the event more lake capacity is needed to prevent flooding.

Anna made this paper coffin for Percy the Angel Fish.

Our favorite Angel Fish, Percy died. We buried him in the backyard in between our lemon and orange trees. Percy was the first fish I ever named and felt sad when he died. He was a sentient being and interacted with us on a daily basis.
