It may not be as big as some of the other holidays in Pokémon GO, but the app has a little celebration in store to commemorate Pokémon Day, marking the 21st anniversary of the franchise writ large. They’ve given Pikachus found out in the wild a little party hat, available until March 6th. Any Pikachus caught during the event will keep their hats forever, but you won’t be able to find new ones once it’s over. A blog post from developer Niantic does not specify whether or not your Pikachu will keep the hat as it evolves to a Raichu: We’ve teamed up with our friends at The Pokémon Company International for their annual celebration of all things Pokémon, and we have a special treat for you this Pokémon
Heading into February, things were looking grim here in the rugged hills north of Santa Barbara. While much of California was emerging from five years of drought, this giant reservoir had dwindled to a weedy channel at just 7% of capacity and was perilously close to being written off as a regional water supply. And then the rains came in unrelenting horizontal sheets. It was one of the largest storms in memory over the Santa Ynez Valley on Feb. 17, swamping historical records and causing the lake to rise a whopping 31 feet in depth in just a few days.
