Yes, that was the patter of rain overnight
After 10 days with no rainfall, there was .1″ in my gauge this morning. This brings my season-to-date total to 19.55″. That compares to 19.05″ on the same date in 2010. April-May of 2010 went on to have an additional two inches. Last week’s warm spell appears to have prompted Menlo’s many liquidambar trees to display their spring leaves.
