Within the last week, a storm has struck California leading to snowpack in the Sierra Nevada to be well above average and reservoirs to be high in capacity. But with all this fortunate gain of water, California itself is still not out of its drought. As Demetri Polyzos, water supply engineer for Southern California's Metropolitan Water, states "We didn't go into this drought overnight. We're certainly not going to get out of it overnight". But no need to be sad California residents, as these storms did have a dent impact onto the drought conditions. As California has faced rough, dry years of 2013 and 2014, years and storms such as this show that California is slowly inching away from its drought conditions. This article is important as California;s drought is recorded as level 3 and 4. Though storms such as these may help reduce drought conditions, we are still in a drought. It is important for Californians to remember to continue to save water, even if there is plenty of water falling from the sky.
