California's Mountain Snowpack "Dismally Meager"

Even though Southern California had a number of rainy days last month, there has been virtually no rain where it's been needed most:  in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.  In normal years, the Sierra snowpack supplies much of the state's water, but the California Department of Water Resources says the current drought has the mountain snowpack at a "dismally meager" level.  KVCR's Ken Vincent has this report from Capital Public Radio.
