It rains in June and it rains in September (often with accompanying thunder), but every year local residents forget. So Monday’s off again, on again showers should not have been a surprise. How much fell depended on where you live, as the squalls moved from west to east, affecting one neighborhood and sparing (or depriving) another.
Emails InMenlo rainfall recorder Bill Russ: “Reporting in with .1″. That brings my year-to-date total to 11.95″. How I wish the 12″ threshhold could not have been reached. Maybe someplace else in Menlo Park, but not in my backyard. Last year we were at 20.8″ and that was the final figure for the rain year.”
