On D Is for Drought

Realitycheck makes a good point - yes, there are protocols that have been in use for decades. However, we are also facing historic drought conditions that have not been encountered since our wise administrators began keeping records more than a century ago. Given that there is no snow in our mountains and no water in our reservoirs, I don't have a high degree of confidence that their protocols will avert the water catastrophe that seems to be unfolding in front of us.
On No Rain, No Water
Posted on January 7 at 12:38 p.m.
According to the SB County Flood Control District, here is how much water we have in our reservoirs as of today:
Gibraltar = 6% of capacityCachuma = 41% of capacityJameson = 28% of capacity
There is a 0% chance of rain through Jan 16, and NOAA forecast models are showing that the drought will intensify through at least February. If this continues, we will run out of water, and all of the evidence indicates that it will continue. Why are our elected officials doing NOTHING?

Rule #1: Unless you enjoy being used, never, ever give money to an addict/alcoholic, for any purpose - even if it is for rehab - even if it is your sibling. I speak from personal experience.
