First significant rain of the year washes away months of Menlo Park dirt

by Bill Russ on September 21, 2013

My brand new rain gauge recorded .6″ of rain in the first storm of the 2013-14 rain year. That’s not bad for September 21 and the eve of the Autumn Equinox. An early start and hopefully a signal of an abundant year!

Soon after peak of downpour I drove past corner of Ravenswood and Middlefield where I observed significant flooding in street. This problem goes back for decades. I guess we’ve decided it’s a feature, not a problem.
