Excessive Rain Extinguishes Drought

Flooding

There is a silver lining to all this dreary weather. No really, there is. All this rain that has kept us up at night and flooded our streets has also done one other thing, extinguished all levels of drought in the state.

Okay, so it’s not the most exciting silver lining. But this is the first in the last few years that we’ve seen zeros across the board for drought measurements, the last time was for a short two weeks in July of 2011.

Compared to the excessive and extreme drought being experienced in California, some might say we’re lucky to have an excess of water on our hands.
