El Niño Journal, Monday 1/12/1998

1.3″ of rain today, .9″ last night for a total of 10″ so far this month. 10″ in 12 days. That’s considerable.

Going back through my records for the prior three years, I find that in January of 1995 we had 13.85″ by 1/12, none in 1996 and only 7.5″ in 1997 (although we had 44.45″ when we started January.) March of 1995 brought us 14.5″ in the first 12 days, so we are up there with the best of my prior recorded storms.
