Today's rain does not put an end to the drought

With a soppy, wet day, the first in a long time in Pueblo, many may wonder if a day like this can end our drought.

Unfortunately no, today's rain is not enough, but those with the Board of Water Works aren't worried.

They say their storage may be low, but it's still twice what it was in 2002.

Plus, today's rain isn't what they count on.

"The rains are great in the spring, summer, and fall, but where most of our water truly comes from is from the snow pack," said Seth Clayton, Director of Administrative Services at the Board of Water Works in Pueblo.

Now it just depends on if this winter will be better than the last.
