We've had a lot of drought problems for the past few years. It's so nice to hear the rain right now, giving hope that we can catch up on some of the much-need precipitation. It isn't just tonight, either. We've been getting a lot more rain the past few weeks than we have in months. It really makes me wonder if we have the possibility of getting out of this horrible drought.
A little over a year ago, the water levels were lower than they had been in almost 100 years. Scary to think of, especially with as many people have moved to the area since the last bad drought. This past year, the water was up a little more, but still nowhere near where it needed to be. In fact, I don't even remember the last time the water levels were really at the right amount.
Hopefully the rain we've been having is a sign of good things to come!
