Dear All:

Another complicating factor for California, is that the major mountain
ranges such as the Sierra Nevada get afternoon thunderstorms from about
July on.  They are not as predictable as the afternoon storms in the
Rockies (you can almost set your watch by those!), but they are frequent,
so the alpine geophytes are not summer-dry.
