Rain off and on on January 4 and 5 added 0.70 inches of new rain at my location in northeast Santa Rosa. That brings our total for the 2017-2018 rain year to 7.00 inches. We are still well below normal so far, but every little bit helps.
[On January 7-8 we had more rain--an additional 2.95 inches. That brings our total for the year so far to 9.95 inches. Normal for this time of year is about 16 inches, so we are well behind average rainfall, but more rain is in the forecast for next week.]
[More rain about a week later added 0.70 inches to the total. As of January 20, we now stand at 10.65 inches for the year.]
[Drizzle on and off since last reporting added an additional 0.70 inches. As of January 24, the total for the year was 11.35 inches.]
