Menlo Park residents awaken to wet streets – and lots of leaves

by Linda Hubbard on December 12, 2020

The long period of dryness – which was coupled with high temperatures for December – ended on Friday evening when rain started falling in Menlo Park.

“My gauge measured 0.17″ for this storm,” reports InMenlo weather watcher Dennis Nugent. “That 0.48″ season-to-date.”

The rain came at the peak of the falling leaves, resulting in lots of clean up to come.

More rain is forecast for Sunday.

Linda, I absolutely love the fall of leaves! Not only do I get to spend time on the sidewalk, raking up leaves and meeting neighbours, but also my garden then benefits from the leaves, collected to serve as mulch. Double-win!
