Water continues to run into the Lake. Harvey’s Cove is getting water. Time for an Eagle’s Tour.

Lake Cachuma After the Rain

Love My Bubble is absolutely right. It's hard to understand why some people still don't get it. According to Noozhawk on Feb. 23, "Santa Barbara “remains in a drought emergency,” water supply manager Kelley Dyer reported last week at a meeting of the city’s Water Commission."

Love to see water filling in the lake’s dry spots. But this in /out of drought talk is ludicrous. We are always on the edge here in Santa Barbara (and Goleta) and ALWAYS need to conserve water, ALWAYS. At 4 years old the saying was “if it’s yellow, let it mellow, when it’s brown, flush it down!” Conserve our water!

Agreed, but tell it to the state that requires SB to zone for more than 4,200 housing units and our council rolls over and agrees or at least shows no sign of standing up for SB to the state.

The tour to see Bald eagles, Ospreys and such is **highly recommended**. Dress warmly. I cannot stress that enough. Sun is out? Feels warm when you start out? Don't forget that coat and hat------and your binoculars.-----------------------My favorite story (spoiler alert) re: the boat tour is still the one about the time the "tourists" witnessed a Mountain lion attacking a deer. The one woman tourist shouted, "Make it stop! Make it stop!" like she thought it was all some animatronic reinactment of predator on prey.

What I wouldn't GIVE to have been on that tour!!! I LOVE mountain lions. We've got tons of deer, and it's just nature. God made 'em that way. Love our native predators.

Lovely photos. Looks like we still have a long, long row to hoe with rain amount.

BIGUGLY STICK AND OTHERS: "Drought" is a word of art that speaks to a shortage that is unexpected, inexperienced in the usual course of things. The rain and water available to Santa Barbara is predictable as are the dry years in between. We cannot say that we are in a drought so much as to say that we have overbuilt our community so that the normal water supply is taxed. Control the population and limit growth and our current supplies are fine for the long run.

I don't know why anyone would down-vote this comment. You are 100% correct. Reports of us being "out of the drought" are funny. When you've lived here all your life you know for a fact that we are never really out of the drought. It's cyclical. California ALWAYS needs more water. Conserve people, don't waste that precious stuff.
