Posted: Updated:


Landon Miller: Well, our current drought and recent rain storms are sparking the curiosity of many in our community - so today a few got out to learn more about the Washoe County area. The Washoe Lake State Park offered a drought-related program where folks learned the reason Washoe Lake is dry.

Leaders of the event  told us their own interpretations of our current drought situation.

Kim Zuch: We do need the rain and the snow up in the mountains. and we probably need a couple good years before the lake actually fills back up."

Miller: Discussion included the dynamics of Washoe Lake, the rain shadow effect, and the water cycle. And stay with channel 2 news for continuing coverage of the impact of our drought across northern Nevada and the west.
