Quite a bit of rain, with more on the way.
Of course the news has been full of receding drought concerns. A secondary news item that sometimes follows is that the drought is defined by surface water. This is the most important caveat.
Ground water usage and replenishment are not well measured, tracked, or inventoried, and what you don't know you have you can't keep track of. Measuring by ground level subsidence, we've kept withdrawals well ahead of replenishment for many years, a fact that is only now coming to light.
