Even after a reasonably wet February, the Bay Area would need to see five to 10 more significant storms by the end of April for regional rain totals to hit their historic seasonal averages.
Residents of California since the 1970's are afflicted with déjà vu. The Governor's name is Jerry Brown, and he has declared a drought emergency.
