0.02" rain; 25.00" this year!

Recent rainfall:
21-Feb    0.33  
26-Feb    0.05  
5-Mar    0.02  

For a grand total of 25.00", a banner year of rain.

I was fortunate to have captured more of that in my back yard than in earlier years by using a new gutter drain that I fortuitously added last summer.  Before that I might have lost a lot of that rain to run off.  The added water should give our garden extra legs in the summer, for which I am thankful
Rainfall totals in 90275 2011/2012 to 2016/2017

The last time we saw significant rainfall in the 20"+ range was 2004/2005.  Going by the recent typical endpoints of the rainy season, we have a few more storms to get out of the way before the end of the season, so I don't expect the rainfall total to stay at "only" 25".
