“Pineapple express” ushers in rain and wind in Menlo Park
Today’s storm is packing more ofPortola Valley School District’s School Maker Faire punch. It’s labeled a “pineapple express,” coming west from Hawaii rather than south from Alaska and by definition, has more moisture.
Emails InMenlo weather watcher Bill Russ: “As of 9:20 am, my gauges show .8” for the storm so far. That is 11.65” season-to-date.”
Showers are predicted off and on through early afternoon today. Alas, more spring blooms, such as the ones pictured, will be knocked off their branches.
Bill sent another update at 3:10 pm: “The sun is shining brightly. I can add but .05” to my morning report.”
