How long has California been experiencing a drought? Is this longer than every other state?

    California’s desperate water situation has existed since 2007, and although water officials were hopeful that 2008 would see an increase in the state’s snowpack and water reserves, it turned out to be even drier. The trend continued throughout 2009. Based on information compiled by the NOAA’s Drought Monitor, California indeed seems to have had the most consistently dry conditions; a smaller area of drought in Wisconsin and Minnesota persisted throughout 2009, but it seems to have begun later than California’s. The Golden State’s current dry conditions are not as bad in absolute terms as the 1976-77 drought, but it has lasted longer. As of late winter 2010, California is still struggling with trying to find enough water for its population and agriculture.
