Well, at least it takes away from more panic porn for the Boy King.  He has  a plate full of that now with the pandemic.  What a douche.  Drought panic will die a quiet death for now. 2022 is starting off well!

Snow pack in Sierra Nevada looking good

According to the California Department of Water Resources, the snow pack in the Sierra Nevada Mountains overall is 159% of the average snow pack for this date — and that’s before today’s storm.

The snow pack in the Sierra Nevada is important because that snow melting over the course of the year provides a big portion of your drinking water on warm sunny days in Spring, Summer, and Fall.

Newsom can't get Californians to cut their water use. His family is doing far better

Gov. Gavin Newsom has had a tough time convincing Californians to conserve water during the drought.

He's done a lot better with his own family.

Compared to a year ago, the Newsoms have reduced water usage on their spacious Fair Oaks home by 33% from late June to early November, according to records released by the governor's office Tuesday.

Tsk tsk tsk, your memory going bad.  Do you have Covid brain fog?

When we get the average snowpack, the dams will fail like Oroville because, you know, years of drought and stuff.

As for the snow pack, we’re looking good, but Jan and Feb need to come through, we another 200 inches to hit ‘normal’, and could really use a ‘16/‘’17 600 incher.

Headline:

The details:
The district also discovered a significant leak in the property's irrigation system.  "They fixed that — that made a difference," Mellon said.

You just can't make this crap up.
