Despite missing the full force of El Nino conditions, there has been sufficient rain on the Central Coast to turn the vineyards green and bring out the wild mustard as viewed on March 22, 2016, near Los Olivos, California.

Protesters gather in Trafalgar Square during a Farmers for Action protest on March 23, 2016 in London, England.
