Rain 0.28"; Season total 1.63"

0.08" on 23 Oct
0.20" on 25 Oct - nice overnight rain with beautiful blue skies on the morning of the 25!

A total of 0.28" in a couple days is the nice sort of rainfall that makes gardens grow.

We're in between rainfall totals from the previous 6 years at the same date: three were greater and three were less.  If direct comparison to historical LA averages are to be trusted, we're well above both mean and median rainfall for the end of October, so we're running a little wet early in the season.  Forecasters are predicting a dryer than normal winter, however, so it might be best to make hay while the sun shinesflowers while the rain falls.
