Good thing there wasn't any drought in California in 2019.

Dry February sends California back to drought: 'This hasn't happened in 150 years'
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/feb/21/california-drought-february-rain-snow-pack-sierra

“We have a fair bit of single-year drought resilience. No matter how severe it is, the cities and most of the [agriculture] zones won’t run out of water.”

The more immediate impacts of this trend will be on the ecosystem and the inevitable fire season, as California’s grasslands and forests continue to dry out.

The reservoirs are all in pretty good shape for this time of year.

But the snowpack above the lakes is about half of normal for the day of the year.

While California had a March Miracle wet season, Florida seems to be in drought after this winter:

Florida Brush Fire Destroys at Least 100 Cars at Airport

October through May is Florida's normal dry season, but this year is drier than usual due to low rainfall and record-high temperatures.


So, rainfall amounts may register close to normal, but the extra warm temperatures still dry out the land. Same as is happening in California and the West, in general.

Is that just down to poor maintenance, letting scrub grow so close to a car park!
