Governor Brown Expected To Declare End Of Calif. Drought

SACRAMENTO (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown is expected to declare an end to California’s 3-year-old drought. The announcement is expected Wednesday, after completion of the state’s final snow survey.

Heavy snow and drenching rains have left California reservoirs at high levels. The Sierra Nevada snowpack was 159 percent of normal as of Friday.

Still, the governor’s office says in a statement Monday that it is critical that Californians continue to conserve water.

The Los Angeles Times says the drought ended from a hydrological perspective last year. But state officials say they wanted to wait until reservoir storage recovered.

      Who is Governer Moonbeam. I thought this news articule is about Governer Jerry Brown.

      • Scott

        Then you are not old enough to rember Jerry Browns first term
        as governer.
        California is in for a rude awakening.

    • wobbles

      You must not be old enough to remember the fist time Jerry “moonbeam” Brown had his way as governor and did his bet to ruin the state. Don’t worry though, he’s back again so you’ll get to see it first hand for yourslelf. I’ve yet to find anyone 50 or older who doesn’t instantly call him that or say “if it’s Brown, flush it down” at the mere mention of this lunatic’s name.

        I was born July 1949, so I do remember Governer JERRY BROWN.

  • Duh!

    I would like to thank Global Warming for keeping the temperatures above average these past few years. Because of the higher temperatures, we now have record snowfall earlier in the season each year, the air can hold more water when it is warm than when it is cold thus we have higher than normal rainfall, and our mountains continue to get snowfall late into March closing the Grapevine.

    Oh wait. The Global Warming Hoax scientists will ignore this data because it doesn’t fall into their Global Warming Hoax model of what should happen. They will fake their data and then destroy it so that no one can check to see if their conclusions make sense.

    I recall this as the typical rainfall pattern that was experienced in So Cal in the 1960’s and 1970’s.

    • Duh!

      It was. That was when the scientist were worried that we were moving into a new ice age.

      According to the geological history data ice ages happen cyclically and the Earth is late for it’s next ice age.

      So, then, nothing has really really changed, other then the rhetoric, of course… :-D
