Looks like the much heralded El Nino rainfall has turned into El No-No for Southern California. It appears that the Sierras have fared a little better. As of 2/1/2016, the Sierra snowpack is at its highest level in five years. The average statewide snowpack is 114% of normal, but they are telling us that we need a minimum of 150% to make a dent in the drought. Most of the CA lakes are roughly half full. Thanks to mandated releases of lake water to ensure adequate flow for the survival of the Neon Gilled Tadpole Sucker and other such species, CA lakes may never return to normal levels. Just wondering how the rainfall is in various areas of Northern California.
