Portland style rain adds up to measurable amount
Surprise! Knowing I needed to check my gauge, but not expecting to find anything measurable, I was tickled to find just below a tenth of an inch. Adding back morning evaporation and some traces I did not count, I will add .1″ to my total for 19.85″. Last year at this date in May we had a bit as well and that total was 20.89″. Both solid rainfall seasons for this area.
