Last December brought record amounts of snow to the Sierra Nevada, California’s main mountain range. The state has of course been suffering from bad, bad drought for years, so we should all be glad that the dry days with all the snow are over, right?

Host: Gustave Arellano
Guests: LA Times wildfire reporter Alex Wigglesworth, LA Times earthquake reporter Ron Lin, and LA Times water reporter Ian James.
