As you can see on the gauge at right, we had almost 3 inches (7 cm) of lovely, gentle rain fall on us yesterday. For once, the rainfall occurred almost exactly when the NOAA forecast said it would: midnight-to-midnight on the 19th. No forecast I saw got the amount right, though — predictions varied from 1.25 inches to 2 inches.

Our wildfire danger is now essentially zero, and it will most likely stay that way for at least a month. Hopefully more…

If our deserts to the east got some of this rain (I don’t know yet whether they did or not), then we’re quite likely to have good desert wildflowers this year.

And of course, in a few weeks I’ll be engaged in the annual battle weeds and grasses battle!
