Red Car Property: Stormwatch, Rainfall Totals

Photo: Jonathan Vandiveer, December 11, 2015.  Dawn on Lot C of the Red Car Property looked pretty dry.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

What little rain we got on Corralitas Drive came in really big drops and a downpour in 15 minutes, Thursday night.  We're tracking rainfall totals in the Corralitas rain gauge as always...

December 10, 2015: 0.02"
Year to date:  0.27"

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 on Corralitas Drive, which ended with 15.17."  We got an unprecedented 4" between July 1 and September 30.
