Living in Los Angeles, other then signs that says to conserve water the drought is not felt at all. In the last two years, we have seen almost no rain. During that same time I've been consistently going to Temescal Canyon to hike.
I've seen the water level decrease consistently. Now it is almost dry. If we don't get rain soon enough, a year from now I will be having a picnic right in the middle of the late waterfall.
