I know we're FAR behind, but I've been hearing that you guys have gotten a pretty good soaking.

Even a little localized flooding. Has it actually made the hillsides any greener?

If you look closely you can see the hills are greener but it's still a little hidden by all the dead brown vegetation.

We need much more rain than we have received.

In San Francisco and points south, I do not think the little rain, which we have had, makes a huge difference. However, it's better than not having any rain at all.

We would need storms like this every week thru may to catch up with normal historical rates of rain fall.

The hills started turning green, but not to their "normal" green yet.

Here is where we are at for this water year. The water year started out strong with early onset of systems. We were doing well in Sept, Oct and the start of Nov. Then the frequency of systems fell, leading the onset of a Rex Block in mid December. From Mid December until late Jan the Block kept nearly everything out. The Block technically broke up late Jan. We have had a few systems since but to give an idea of the situation, the pace and intensity of the systems has been like November, not like Mid Winter. Long range forecasts seem to hint at a better situation in March but by the end of March, unless we have a very long rainy season, we'll be running out of runway. That said, it does seem that since we switched to a Negative PDO, the seasons have lasted longer, even during drier water years. For example last season went past the Summer Solstice.
