HOPE RANCH, Calif. - One gauge of the recent rain is the dry Laguna Blanca lake in Hope Ranch.
You would think with the rains we've had, there would be a noticeable pool of water there.
But NewsChannel 3 drove by only to find it a little muddy and mostly empty.
The lake off Las Palmas drive might look different in a week when the atmospheric river of rain passes through.
For now, it is a reminder of the on-going drought.
