Rain: OK, I'm Officially Tired of It (March 26, 2011)
It just keeps coming down. We are in a lull this morning, but it's rained virtually all week. Yesterday and last night added another 3.6 inches to our total for the 2010-2011 rainy season, bringing it to 35.6 inches at my house. Other places in Santa Rosa have recorded as much as 38 inches. The historical average rainfall for Santa Rosa has been rising. It is now 31.91 inches, but we are already more than three inches above that before the end of March (the current rainy season ends June 30). The historical average for March 26 is 27.9 inches, so we are nearly eight inches above normal for this day and only 10 inches below the fifth wettest year on record, which was 45.8 inches, recorded in 1894-1895. I'm officially tired of it now. A little bit of sun, please?
