Rain brings the return of Lake Lagunita

by Linda Hubbard on January 15, 2023

We’d gotten reports that water was now filling Lake Lagunita on the Stanford campus — always good to see, reminding long-time residents of the days you could swim and boat there.

InMenlo contributing photographer Robb Most went over and took the photos that accompany this post.

As for the rain update, InMenlo weather watcher Dennis Nugent’s digital gauge is malfunctioning (don’t rely on technology) so we reached out to Mike Laine, who lives about two blocks away as the the crow flies. His report as of 4:00 pm today:

“From Friday morning until 10:00 am on Saturday, the gauge measured 2.125”. As I was out of town, my sister-in-law  emptied the gauge at 10:00 am on Saturday, and since then the total is, .56″. That brings my year to date total to, 23.111”.”

Meanwhile, Dennis has put his old, manual gauge out in the garden.
