Here’s What That Last Storm Did For California’s Water Supply

It’s been an usually dry winter, and last weekend’s atmospheric river was welcome for the snow and rain it brought. But what did it mean for California’s water supply? In truth? Not much. As of last week, this winter was on track to be one of the warmest and driest on record. So, no one would blame you if you breathed a sigh of relief when that freezing cold storm came through and dumped rain and snow on our parched state. But look at the numbers and you’ll see that California’s far from recovered.
