Corralitas Drive: One Way To Measure Rain

Photo: Diane Edwardson, October 5, 2011.  We didn't get our new rain gauge up in time for the rain, but the open trashcans on Corralitas all had about 3" of rain in them by late afternoon.  Trash was picked up before 8 AM.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

We always see way more rain than Downtown Los Angeles.  I heard one report of 4" in Silver Lake, Wednesday. 

**UPDATE: A neighbor sent me the link, it was fellow Silver Lake blogger Will Campbell who captured 4" in his Silver Lake rain gauge.

To unscientifically prove a point, we'll report rainfall totals collected on Corralitas Drive this season.  

October 5, 2011: 3"
Season Total: 3"
