Bright sunshine wakes up the poppies

by Linda Hubbard on March 9, 2010

Yesterday’s mix of wind, rain and hail was followed this morning by bright sunshine – and a near cloudless sky. That opened up the poppies growing in one Menlo Park side yard. Reports InMenlo rain watcher Bill Russ:  “I recorded another .1″ Monday, bringing my year-to-date total to 17″. This compares to 13.95″ on the same date in 2009.  Last year’s final total was 14.85″, meaning not much more rain fell in March and April. Lets hope 2010 has lots more to record.”
