In fact, now the US drought monitor is saying we have moderate drought conditions. All but the north coast of San Luis Obispo county is abnormally dry. Same holds true to the south of us. Santa Barbara, Ventura and Los Angeles counties are all dry.
The drought monitor data indicates more than 50% of the state of California is abnormally dry or experiencing moderate drought conditions. The good news is that reservoirs in the county remain near capacity. Santa Margarita lake is 83% full. Lake Nacimiento 52% of capacity. Whale Rock reservoir near Cayucos is 84% full.
