If you're looking for rainfall comparisons between this year and last year, try this one: Redding got 15 more inches rain of since October 1st than in the previous year.  FIFTEEN inches. 

But many a meteorologist points out that the El Niño rains were not evenly distributed: much of Southern California is still experiencing drought conditions. 

Even so, some drought restrictions are being lifted.  The Bay Institute takes major exception to actions by the state Water Resources Control Board and other entities.  Jon Rosenfield from the institute joins us to explain the environmental impacts of lifting restrictions now.
