An arid climate and a rapidly growing population has left the state in a drought crisis. Thanks to a series of thunderstorms and showers throughout the state, it brings a welcome sigh of relief to everyone. The state is now beginning to take a cue from California, a state that is similarly facing a severe drought crisis. In that state, government officials are calling for citizens to reduce their water usage by 25%, among many other conservation efforts.
One of these restrictions is that a household can only water their lawn on certain days of the week, for only a few minutes a day. Some Texas environmental legislators are drawing inspiration from California’s drought crisis to implement similar restrictions.

Heavy rain is expected this week, with Denton County has rated the drought crisis from severe to moderate, based on the current weather conditions. So far this year, we have seen approximately 14 inches of rain, bringing relief to a drought that has been ongoing since 2010. Some climatologists have claimed that the weather will continue to maintain the cooler, more rainy throughout May, thanks to El Niño.
