Noon – wind gusts up to 45 mph. Steady, usually above 20.
7:15am – the joyous sound of the filling of our creeks, streams, rivers and waterfall. Up here, I have received .50″ but it is raining at the rate of .74″/hour, just a few minutes ago, currently only .24″ so if this keeps up, that total is going to rapidly climb! The maximum wind gusts were 24 mph at 4 am.
To get an idea of how fast it is coming down, in the 15 mins since I wrote this, and while trying to upload it, it is up to .65″ holy, moley! And a new high rate of 1.84″/hour at 7:30! Yowsa!
