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

5 PM, April 8, 2016 to April 10, 2016: 0.2"
*Rain year to date: 9.1"
*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.
