The production of SWW in the PNW was dropped 20% this report after not budging all summer! I just I assumed I was the lone voice (again) and maybe I was.
Conspiracy? I doubt it. Just a matter of nobody making any field checks here. Don't know if USDA was supposed to but it's obvious they didn't. It's not as if there weren't plenty of signs - like a brutal winter with widespread winter kill, lower percip, cold spring and a hot summer.
