    They do have reservoirs down there that are filling.

    Use it on farms. There shouldn't be golf courses in areas with regular and predictable droughts.

    We are all brothers and sisters in humanity. We are all made from the same dust of stars. We cannot be separated because all life is interconnected.

    Lake Shasta rises 118 feet

    "March has delivered.

    The steady stream of storms this month has brought the water level at Lake Shasta a mere 31 feet from the top.

    Thatís good news for Redding and North State residents who depend on the stateís largest reservoir for their water needs.

    The lake has gone up 9 feet over the past week as Shasta Dam has received about 4 inches of rain during that time, said Don Bader, area manager of the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.

    As of Wednesday afternoon, there was 3.7 million acre feet of water in Lake Shasta, which means the lake is 82% full. When full, the lake holds 4.5 million acre feet.

    The lake has gone up 118 feet since Dec. 1".
