Corralitas Drive: Questioning My Rain Gauge

Since moving a hundred feet up the street, I've had trouble finding a  good location for my rain gauge.  Too many trees are blocking a clear rain catch.  Today's rain says to me, I need to find another location for the gauge.  There's no way we only had 0.7" of rain today.  Pasadena got 1.15".  We're usually on par with Pasadena. 

Possibly under-counted rainfall totals collected on Corralitas Drive:

January 23, 2012: 0.7"
Season to date: 7.2"
