Milestone recorded: 30 inches of rain in Menlo Park

by Linda Hubbard on March 6, 2017

Afternoon update from Bill: “Nearly 4:00 pm,  and the sun is shining brightly. Still,.another .1″ since my morning report of .15″. My season to date total now 30.2″. Consider this for InMenlo readers:To get a sense of 30″, suggest measuring 30″ from their sides. In my case, it reached the point where my thigh gives way to my hip. That is a lot of water that settled on most Menlo Park properties since October.”

Morning report: Emails InMenlo weather watcher Bill Russ early this morning (before the 8:30 shower): “And we did it, at least in my backyard, that is to reach 30″ of rainfall. The most since 97′-98′. There was .15″ in my gauge this morning, bringing my season-to-date total to 30.1 inches.”

The sky continues to alternate between blue and cloudy, the latter making a still barren oak stand out nicely.
