earlier, there was a fiery crash that left a person dead. several lanes closed. officers cleared that crash. turning now to our ongoing series, climate in crisis. five years ago, if you remember, we had a major drought, and we were all asked to conserve water. well, it could be happening again, because there's not enough snow in the sierra. today we got the third snowpack report of the year and the outlook is not good. in fact, it's bleak. so far we've gotten 61% of the snow we should have this time this year. >> the series of storms over the last couple weeks brought a significant a rain and snow. however, these storms were not nearly enough to make up the deficit that we've accumulated over the last few months. >> so, without more snow, if we don't get it soon, we could be back, we could have back to back dry years. not only that, but the drought also means increased fire

6:46 pm
qualify for fry file. >> it allows people generally with incomes $72,000 or less for this year, that's the income stipulation, to file a federal income tax return for free. we have a word of caution about ghost preparers, people who do your taxes for free but refuse to sign your return along with you. that's a problem when uncle sam spots a problem. >> you're the one who has to deal with the irs. they prepare the return, you sign it, unfortunately, you're responsible for it once you sign it. >> how do you know if a preparer is legitimate? the same way we recommend you look up a car mechanic or home contractor, you've got to check out your tax preparer. ask the for their preparer tax identification numberer. >> every tax preparer has this.

6:48 pm
the lack of rainfall we've had all season. >> that's so right. right on point here. we have just been so hard-pressed to get consistent rainfall here across the bay area the past couple months. that's where i wanted to focus our climate coverage on tonight. so the chart i'm about to pick up, put up here, it's a look at 40 years of data. you will be able to see the green line. that's our average, and can you see there's really only been a handful of time we have seen above-average rainfall. i did the calculations. only 47% of the time have we got above average rainfall over the past several years. and this year it's now ranking as the seventh driest on record. three of the top five driest in 2013, 2015, and then the current rain season in 2020-2021. there was one exception in 1983 when we had a very strong el
