It looks like we're good for this year, but unless we get a whole bunch of these during the next decade we'll be in trouble. We have too many people using too much water and it's not likely that we'll escape extreme rationing for much longer.

Storms boost Sierra snowpack
At this point it looks like it won't just be a good or above average year. It appears that a record breaking year is very likely!

Avalanche control underway across Sierra
So much snow that avalanche concerns are higher than usual. Next there may be flood issues to deal with.

Draining Arizona: Mining For Water In The Desert Leaves Residents' Wells Dry
This situation is happening in Arizona, but similar scenarios are occurring in California. As the water table drops, wells must be drilled deeper and that's expensive. The aquifer that Ridgecrest and Trona depends on is steadily being depleted. A few bad years of drought could be disaster.
