So far, almost a 1/2" of rain has fallen since midnight. Some wind gusts but nothing crazy (21mph). Rain's been steady.

RADAR shows some rotating T-storms in the area at the moment. I'd guess we'll get close to an inch if the rain keeps falling.

When does the rain start? I keep putting on my rain gear for my daily Sac to Berk commute and it's hot in that stuff when it doesn't rain.

Rained pretty good for most of the day up here in Sonora. Seems Round 2 has fizzled out, but they say Round 3 is going to have a bigger punch !

You may want to grab your tall boots and strap your hat down, if the last couple hours here in Solano County is headed your way

Yeah man, it's gettin' with it here. Wind woke us up at about 5am, news said it'll taper off after noon. Glad I don't have to ride to work right now.

Been raining here since about 0600. Up to 1.2" so far.

P.S. Anyone hear from Dave?

MendoGurgleDave, where are you?


Looking at the rainfall totals...I'm thinking the wind is skewing the numbers, blowing the rain past the gauges. Looks like a hell of a lot more than 1.5" to me.

That was a storm

Ok, now that was a storm, all right. My brother texts me at 3am, NOW THAT IS RAINFALL...

something when thud in the night and shook the house, nothing obvious from here but I am going out mushrooming and will see, it was large, whatever it was.

no, that rainfall was pretty accurate, I am surrounded by trees so the rain readings are pretty good.

when it is raining that hard it is difficult to distinguish the howl of the wind from the roar of the rain.

This time I did manage to sleep.

I have a computer job in Albion this morning, so will take some photos of the storm debris.

No power loss, no internet outage. pretty damn good!

still coming down outside.

Maybe I won't swap that drive out of my movie raid array just yet.

Here in the Sac area the rainfall totals are all over the map, 1" here in Elk Grove, 2.5" in Roseville, 1.5" at the airport...probably trust that one more than the others.

looks like the weather station got knocked askew. I will have to get up on the roof and fix that.
