California is now going into its fourth year of drought. For the first time in recorded history there was no measureable rainfall in San Francisco during January. Also the Sierra Nevada’s snowpack, which supplies a third of California’s water, is much lower than normal. California as a whole has cut down on water usage by 22 percent. Unfortunately, that still might not be enough.
