Does this mean we are better off today then we were last year? My answer is no not really. If you look at January 1st of this year only 21.15% of the state was considered severe drought or worse. That means we have had an absolutely dry beginning to our spring and have fallen way behind on rainfall for the year. At my house we have had 1.2 inches of rain since January 1st. That is remarkably low, usually we would have had 10+ inches at this time.
