A nice little storm blows through Menlo Park

by Linda Hubbard Gulker on December 23, 2016

Update from Bill on Saturday, 12/24: “.1″ accumulated in my gauges. Now at 9.1″ season-to-date.”

It was a day of off and on rain, broken up by an occasional blue sky and a rainbow here and there.

His afternoon report added another .3″: “That is .8″ for the day. My season-to-date total is 9”. This compares to 6.15″ same time last year.

“The entirety for rain year ’13-’14 was 9.55″. That grim year pitched us into major conservation.”

InMenlo contributing photographer Robb Most captured some of the minor flooding at the Menlo Park train station.

Footnote: Did no one tell Samtrans that Hillview School is closed for the winter break?
