Let it rain!

Have a look at this chart, from the California Department of Water Resources: every single major reservoir in the state, including the monumentally ginormous reservoirs of Lake Shasta and Lake Oroville, are above their historical average, and within a few percentage points of capacity.

Around these parts, we get our water from New Melones and Don Pedro, and yes, they're nearly full too.

  1. Shasta came within about 10 feet of full before they started letting huge amounts of water out to make room for the expected run-off. I went to Oregon to visit family on the 7th and almost had to turn back at the Siskiyous due to heavy snow, 97 was closed due to snow.
