Artificial azaleas and other flowers are perfect for drought restrictions.

The dry spell has finally broken! While rain is always a pleasant surprise in Southern California, the recent downpours have been especially welcome. The come at a time when the drought in California has been declared a national emergency.

In November 2014, San Diego released it’s newest round of water usage restrictions and some counties have drought mandates planned until 2020. The statewide rainfall average was so low that the recent storm showed more rainfall than all of 2013.

While this rain is certainly cause for celebration, it is not the end of our drought problems. Lakes, rivers, and all other inland bodies of water in California are still far below their average waterline. While the rain was a brief, welcome reprieve from the dryness, California is still far from lifting the official “drought” status.
