Rain keeps pounding Menlo Park with more on the way
Update at 4:00 pm from Bill: ‘Add .3″ of rainfall to my 8am report for a total of 1.3″. My season-to-date total is now 12.55″. This compares to 4.7″ on this date in 2010. The rain year 2010-2011 was the last, in my backyard, to exceed 20″. Those months in early 2011 produced 16’. May we do the same.”
InMenlo weather watcher Bill Russ checked his backyard gauges just before 8:00 this morning and found an additional 1″ from the overnight rain, giving him a season-to-date of 12.25 inches. And that was before the noon time deluge. We’ll bring you updated inches when Bill next checks.
We’re guessing he’ll be busy with rain expected everyday this week with the exception of Thursday. Isn’t this what winter around here used to be like? How soon we forget.
