Corralitas & Rosebud Mudwatch: Cleaning Up After Dolores, Rainfall Totals

Photo: Diane Edwardson, July 20, 2015. The construction crew working at the site atop the Corralitas Public Staircase spent this morning clearing the mud from the stairs, sidewalk and the intersection of Corralitas & Rosebud.  (Click on photos to enlarge.)

We're tracking rainfall totals in the Corralitas rain gauge...

July 18, 2015: 0.9"
July 19, 2015: 0.05"
*Season to date: 12.17" 

*Normally, the rain year would have ended June 30.  However, this year California joined the rest of the country, and will report rainfall totals between October 1 to September 30.  Who expected to have significant rain between July 1 and October 1?  There will always be an asterisk next to the 2014-2015 rain year.
