    Don't feel so bad about letting your kids wash your car again.

    If you've been a good soldier and let your car gather layers of mud as the state has struggled through a drought, it's time to wash your car again. But don't go crazy.

    Several Bay Area water districts say the recent rain has officially pushed them out of a drought.

    East Bay MUD and the Contra Costa Water District  say they are ending their drought management programs because the Sierra snow pack has reached over 100 percent of normal.

    An official with the Santa Clara Valley Water District told KCBS its board will vote next month about possibly ending a 15 percent mandatory conservation mandate.

    But all the agencies still caution water users to continue not wasting water and the governor is the only person who can officially declare an end to a drought. So after washing the car, maybe give it a few more weeks before you wash it again.
