Rain Report, 4/7/15

Noon – final tally, 1.3″ nice. As to snow … I have a cloud sitting right on trop of me. A friend from Willow Creek called and said it was clear everywhere else except for Plaskett top. So, can’t see Cone Peak. Sorry. Maybe later today.

8:00 am – Was awake at 3 am when it all started, then woke again by that wonderful, almost-forgotten sound. So far, .just over an inch at 8 am wow! That ought to keep the onset of fire season off for a bit. Maximum wind gusts of 33 mph this morning.  Time to get the fire and the coffee going. All so delicious!
