It's Been 44 Days Since Sacramento Has Had Rain

44 days --that's how long it's been since Sacramento had any real rain. What's next for all of us who are depending on shrinking water supplies?

Dr. Peter Gleick is president of the Pacific Institute in Oakland, and he believes it's not likely we're going to see significant rain. He says it's a fact that there's just not enough water to go around anymore.

"So we do look to smarter use of water -- conservation and efficiency. There is some talk of building desalination plants, but that's really, really expensive," he said. 

Dr. Gleick says there's no one magic bullet for the drought problem.
