Bill the Bulb Baron's narcissus at Menlo Park Farmers Market

You can almost hear the excitement in InMenlo rainfall watcher Bill Russ’s report: “While we were sleeping, .9″ fell, bringing my season-to-date total to 8.4″. This is the best drop of the seasonal rain year, and we now exceed my lowest total of the last 17 years, which was 8.2″. Thank you, Lord!

“The next lowest threshhold is 14.3″ in 2001 and 14.5″ in 2004. Otherwise the years have been in the normal range of 16-18″ or higher. There remains time to breach those 14″ levels!”

Late morning skies alternated between cloudy and patches of sunshine. During a sunny period, we caught Bill the Bulb Baron’s narcissus in their perpetually cheery state.
