The steady rains that have fallen recently in San Joaquin County are beneficial for area reservoirs and most farmers, but asparagus growers are worried too much rain could make harvesting difficult in muddy fields.

California has teetered between deluge and drought the past several years. This El Niño year, like the previous one in 2005, is shaping up to be generous with rain and snowfall. Locally, Lodi is receiving more precipitation in recent months than it has since 2005. Clear skies are expected today, but more showers are expected Friday and through the weekend.
