Rain 0.70"; 5.03" season total

We have two storm systems moving through. Today around noon the first had left 0.7" of rain in my back yard. 0.5" of that was in the space of an hour or less - that's a hard rainfall for Southern California.

We need this rain and more to overcome the drought that we're in.


  1. We only got 0.25" last night and 0.1" this morning, if you believe the rain gauge.

    I think it was tilted slightly, skewing the measurements low.

  2. I measured 0.45" in the last 24 hours. Enough to fill 1.5 rain barrels (total, ~90 gallons).
