California’s drought continues, and the state has enacted restrictions that reach into bathrooms and onto lawns. The state has to somehow save 490 billion gallons of water in the next nine months, assuming that the rains come back soon after that. Snowpack, the source for much of the water, is only at 6% of normal. It looks like a dry, brown, and dusty year for California, its people, its industries, and its farms.
