7:30 am – Between midnight and dawn I received another .65″ of rain bringing the storm total to 2.82″ – impressive and needed. Hopefully, this is just a beginning. The greatest rate of rain, after midnight, came at 2 am, when it was quite loud at 2.82″/hour. Before midnight, it was up to 4 1/2″ per hour at one point – could have been Hawaii but for the cold, down around 40 degrees most of the night. Predictions are for showers on and off today, but at the moment it is off. Enjoy the earthy smell of the after-rain.
