California’s Brown on drought: Governors can’t make it rain

By John Hrabe | Cal Watchdog

As the rest of the country remains in a deep freeze, California’s weather is making headlines of its own.

2013 was one of the driest years on record in California. Los Angeles, which sees average annual rainfall of 14.90 inches, benefited from just 3.6 inches of rain last year. At the other end of the state, it was the same story. San Francisco went the entire year without a day of rain totaling an inch or more. The severe drought, according to data compiled by the Weather Channel, is affecting 85 percent of the state.

Local governments throughout the state, especially in rural communities, are responding with emergency declarations.
