Above average rainfall in February and March is helping Humboldt County climb out of its precipitation deficit. We're still in a drought, and the grasslands of Southern Humboldt in particular will suffer the dry effects, folks from our local branch of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration warn. But there are good signs as well. March saw 6.25 inches of rain, compared to a 5.30-inch average. And Ruth Lake is full. Above is an update of this year's wet season, along with numbers from last year, the big '70s drought and the yearly average. Keep your fingers crossed for drops and drizzle.
