Rain: Final Rain of the Season? (May 24-25, 2011)

We got another half inch of rain last night and this morning, which is very late in the season for us, but by no means unheard of. The new rain brings our total for the 2010-2011 rainy season to 38.6 inches, which is well above the average annual rainfall for Santa Rosa historically, which has been 31.9 inches. That means I'll have to get out there yet again to spray the grape vines with sulfur, to prevent mold, although it's been so cool and windy that the conditions haven't really been the sort that promote mold.

[Update: A bit of drizzle followed this, adding another 0.05 inches to the total, so we are now at 38.65 inches for the year.]
