Here is my rainfall report for the 2013-14 rain year that began on July 1, 2013 and ends today: 9.55″ fell in my Menlo Park backyard. That compares to 16.50″ in the 2012-2013 rain year.
Local weather watchers may be reminded that there have been worse rain years: 8.2″ fell in the 2o06-07 year.
In the last 10 rain years, I have collected over 20″ four times.
