How dry is it?

The California Department of Water Resources has three graphs showing the water content of snow in California (northern, central, and southern) - here's the southern graph:
Snowpack water content-Southern California 2012
The solid pink line creeping along near the bottom is the current water content. The broken brown line near it is the dry winter of 1976-77. The green line is last winter. The dotted black line smoothly arcing through the middle is the average - of all years, I suppose. The vertical scale is percentage, using the average water content on April 1 as 100%.
