And the rain came, along with the wind
The rain that’s been predicted finally arrived in full today, after just some hints on Sunday. The holiday for many translated into a light commute on Sand Hill Road (pictured). But woe to the driver who was heading east on Santa Cruz Avenue late morning; as recounted in the Almanac News, the top of a redwood tree snapped off and crashed down on a car. Rainfall watcher Bill Russ recorded .75″ in his backyard gauge over the last 24 hours through 4:00 pm. The deluge is expected to continue through the week and may rival the ’97-’98 torrents, meaning the San Francisquito Creek watch has officially begun.
