Thankful for rain... but still in a severe drought

We are so very thankful for the rain we got over the last week or so. But, by no means is this drought over. Here is a quick visual from the Department of Water Resources.

The shaded blue is the historical average. The red line is the drought of 76-77. In my community that drought impacted our area by a drop of 40% in our local economy.

The solid blue is current levels. Lower than even the drought of 76-77.

Bottom line, we are thankful for this rain but need to keep hoping and praying for more of it.
