Red Car Property: Updated Rainfall Totals

**Correction 12-11-15: updated season to date rainfall totals

We're tracking rainfall totals in the Corralitas rain gauge we got another 0.1": by midnight yesterday:

September 15, 2015: 3.0"
**Year to date: 15.17"

*9-16-15, Correction: Thanks Jonathan.  Yes, the water flows both ways out of Red Car Canyon.  The high point in the canyon is where the path from Riverside Place meets up with the Red Car Property.  I apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

**12-11-15: 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.
