Nearly every part of our country experiences periods of reduced rainfall. In California, drought can not only affect our water supply, but can help create conditions where seasonal wildfires become catastrophic disasters. If we plan for drought, then we can enjoy the benefits of normal or rainy years and not get caught unprepared in dry years.
