Rain: Beautiful Rainbow (March 25 through April 4, 2010)

After an extended period of sunny weather, we had a quarter inch of rain last night and this morning, and even some hail in the late morning today. That brings our total for the 2009/20010 season to 24.95 inches. The historical average for this day (March 25) is 27.54 inches in Santa Rosa. We are therefore about 2.5 inches inches below average but well ahead of last year, and some Santa Rosa stations have reported as much as 29.6 inches this season. Sunny and clear again now but with an occasional shower. Just missed one of the most perfect rainbows I've ever seen--a full double rainbow. Unfortunately, it was a faint single one by the time I got my camera. Still, the light was nice....

[Update: Since last posting (above) we've had another 1.1 inches of rain. The 2009-2010 total is now 26.05 inches as of the evening of April 3--but more rain is forecast for tomorrow and Monday....]

[Further update: On the evening of the 4th and the morning of the 5th, yet another inch of rain fell, bringing the total to 27.05 inches.]
