Raining Cats and Dogs

Midnight … Ended up with 2.17″ for Halloween. Nice. Hopefully we will get more on Saturday. Enjoy.

4:30 pm – The storm front hit here at 3:25 pm, when the rain rate per hour reached 1.47″/hour. We have received .41″ so far today, and the rain rate per hour has been primarily between 1/2″ and 1 and 1/2 inch for the last hour.

I am SO glad I decided to take a pass on going out today … my ability to get home, of some concern to me. I have been able to enjoy the sound of this first real rain of the season, the company of my dogs, hot chocolate, and soon, a fire in the wood stove. The simple pleasures of living in the wilds of Big Sur …they nourish me .

Oops, just hit over 3 and 1/2″ per hour rain rate. Yeehaw!
