First rain since mid-January clears the dust away in Menlo Park

by Linda Hubbard on February 3, 2023

After so much rain at the beginning of the year, we were all ready for a bit of a respite. But it was good to hear the raindrops fall once again around 3:00 am, continuing off and on through the morning, with another shower late afternoon.

InMenlo weather watcher Dennis Nugent’s new digital gauge recorded 0.32″, bringing the season-to-date total (October 1 to September 30) to 23.85″ as of 4:30 pm.

Menlo Park resident Robin Tobias captured these raindrops on some heart-shaped foliage (natch!) during her morning dog walk.

It is lovely to see the rain on Miner’s lettuce, but distressing to see it it competing with Oxalis pes­caprae, a highly invasive non-native that is hard to eliminate.
Please read more and help to remove it. Now is the time!!
