A random benefit from last month’s earthquake in Napa Valley? Water. Lots of it. Seems all that shaking in the earth opened up fissures in the rocks that have allowed massive deposits of groundwater to reach the surface, turning once parched land into pockets of green. At one creek north of Vallejo, an estimated 200,000 gallons of water are flowing daily down the tiny waterway into the bay. Like all good earthly things though, the surplus is bound to stop. As one hydrogeologist said: “There is only so much water in there. As the water table lowers, the water flow diminishes. It’s like a bank account. You’ve just reached into the bank account and borrowed some money, but the spending spree will eventually end.”

Before going to bed on the night before Good Friday, Cowgirl Café owner Karen Hendrickson prayed to the Lord: “Dear God, please just continue to look over the Cowgirl Café.” Little did she know that the next morning her prayers would be answered, and it would be the big guy’s son who would do the watching. Risen from the griddle—and soon to be on display in the Norco, California restaurant—this image of Jesus with “a receding hairline” appeared on a freshly made pancake. To some it’s a “divine sign,” and to others a wasted meal that looks like Charles Manson, but whatever the case, Jesus is out there on a pancake on a plate for anyone that wants to make the pilgrimage.
