The Rain Was Not Enough

Deceptive appearance:
overflowing gutters.
Tuesday night's rainstorm helped the water levels in South Bay reservoirs rise to 44% of capacity as of this writing. More significantly, the Sierra snowpack--from which our city of 30,000 strong gets most of its water--is only at 32% of normal.

It's going to take a miracle to prevent rationing (e.g., no lawn watering) from taking effect later this year.

As life teaches, you can't dig yourself out of a hole, dry or otherwise, overnight.
