Corralitas Drive & Rosebud Ave: Watch Out For Falling Rocks, Rainfall Totals

Photo: Gary Vlahakis, April 8, 2016.  Yesterday, another neighbor asked about the falling rocks from the construction site above the intersection of Corralitas & Rosebud.  Yeah, they're tumbling down.  Mud is also sliding down the public staircase and sidewalk.

Preliminary rainfall totals this afternoon:
April 8, 2016, 9 AM - 5 PM: 0.2" 
*Rain year to date: 8.9"

*Normally, the "rain year" would have ended June 30.  However, this rain year, California joined the rest of the country, reporting 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 and 2015-2016 rain years on Corralitas Drive.  The 2014-2015 rain year ended with 15.17."  We got an unprecedented 4" between July 1 and September 30, 2015.
