Rain: 1.5 Inches More Rain (February 24, 2011)

We had yet another 1.5 inches of rain overnight. That brings our total to 21.15 inches so far in the 2009-2010 season. That's still a little below the average. Average rainfall by this date (February 24) has been 22.59 inches historically in Santa Rosa, but other local stations have reported as much as three inches more than the average. We finished last year 8.5 inches below the historical average, so we are doing very well in either case. We've already had more rain this season than in all of last year.

[Update: Had another 0.9 inches of rain on the evening of the 26th. As of today, the 27th. Our total is 22.05 inches.]

[Update: Another 1.5 inches overnight on March 2. As of the morning of March 3, we have now had 23.55 inches of rain in the 2009-2010 season.]

[Yet another update: Another 0.25 inches fell on March 4. Our total is now 23.8 inches, as of March 7. According to the forecasts, we aren't going to have much new rain for the next week or so. Beautiful sunny day today.]
