Stacey & Mike's Happy News: Severe Draught Over In Two States

Thanks to Jessica in Vancouver

Utah is experiencing “a year to remember” in terms of snowfall, with every single part of the state experiencing 130% more snowpack in the mountains than normal. 

Utah gets approximately 95% of its water from snowpack. Reservoir storage is dependent upon snowpack and runoff to get through the dry years.

The snows have put an end to all drought conditions in the state for the rest of the year.

Meanwhile, in March, California experienced twelve Pacific rainstorms, completely alleviating all but the farthest southern tip of the state from a three-year drought which was also labeled ‘extreme’ and ‘exceptional’

Their snowpack is also on track to break records; to be either the first or second-deepest on record going back to 1950.

It will be the first time since 2020 that the state will not be considered in a drought of some severity.
