When the heavy rain broke up around noon, we weren’t the only ones walking on the bridge over San Francisquito Creek at San Mateo Drive. It’s a favorite spot to check out the effect of the rainfall in the past 24 hours.
InMenlo weather watcher Bill Russ reports: “1.1” for the day’s storm. My season-to-date total is now 11.45″. Back in January, 2010, at this same date, my reading was 10.9″. That was the last solid rain year in my backyard – 21.8″ for the full year.”
A couple of Mallards (close to lower right) didn’t seem distressed at the strong creek flow, although they did appear to be hunkering close to the bank.
