Recent rains in the Bay Area have refilled Stanford's Lake Lagunita. I had the opportunity to cover a story about how this impacts California's drought.
With a history of droughts, this year’s flooding is an anomaly in recent memory.

In a panel held by Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment last week, Robinson said floods are a recurring issue in California even amid a drought.
