We’re headed into the second dry year in a row here in California.
That’s according to UC Davis environmental engineering professor Jay Lund. The whole West Coast has been locked into a drought that started in 1999. It’s called a megadrought. The “March Miracle”, enough rainfall to get us ahead, never happened. 90% of California is locked into drought conditions.
The snowpack in the Sierra, responsible for much of the state’s water supply, never materialized either. It amounted to only 60% of the average last month.
