Still in drought. (Literally.)

We are, both perplexingly and officially, still in a drought. Even though we have been getting rain in buckets every day...but that's what happens when you have the gummint in charge of things.

The grating thing is that 2-3 years ago, the Really Big Lake which is the major reservoir for the whole state was full of water.

Full to the tippy-top.

This is what supplies the water whenever the rainfall is short. As I said it was very full. So the Brain Trust* decided to drain it substantially. In case we had another year where 4 major hurricanes hit within one month.

You can guess what happened next. No hurricanes. No rain. Half-empty lake. Massive water restrictions.

Just last month they announced the strictest ones yet. Then it started to rain an average of 2"/5cm every day for a month.

Naturally, the restrictions have yet to be lifted.

Oy.
