contacted a half dozen climate and policy experts. Like all good people, we put money in the bank for those rainy days that don't come.".

Drought not over yet, but that doesn't mean that the drought is officially over, nor does it mean that everyone has water available at this time.

Several were near capacity, and there was so much water that the Oroville dam the tallest in the US was overwhelmed in February thanks to an eroded spillway.
