Two weeks ago I listened in on an “open media call” regarding Colorado’s continuing drought.

It was hosted by Western Resource Advocates, an environmental law and policy nonprofit founded in 1989, with headquarters in Boulder and offices across the Southwest. As it happened, the call coincided with announcements by two Front Range cities, Louisville and Lafayette, that they were initiating water restrictions in their communities.

Bart Miller, WRA’s water program director made an intriguing comparison between the years 2002-2003 and our present drought situation.

“Two-thousand-two was probably the driest year in [Colorado] history,” he said. “But in 2003, the state was saved by the largest snowstorm in Colorado history.”
