Storm and Road Report, 12/22/15


5:00 am – Rocks and Debris all up and down Highway One, but no specific closure listed on CHP. It sounds like a mess, and since the entries, shortly after midnight, I suspect there are closures that are not reported.

Woke at 4:30 am to the sound of pouring rain on a metal roof. That can be, and was, very loud. Went to my weather station to see I had received 1.10″ for the day – since midnight – what about between my last reading at 10:15 and midnight? With a little math from the last monthly reading and current monthly reading, I got a total of 3.14″ for the day, plus the current daily 1.10 inches, we are up to 4.25″, or 11.97″ for the year – probably 12″ now in the time it took me to type this. Oh, yes, I’d say El Niño is here.
