It's true. When it finally rains in California, it pours.
Thursday, Feb. 16th, we had our first big rain storm in years. No post because our electricity went out.
Soaking rains over the previous month have made a huge difference for the hillside. This rain is soaking in before running off. No mud flowing. Two inches fell before noon, a total of four and a quarter inches for the day.
Spring flowers are already emerging and the plum tree is about to burst into bloom.
Have to love the rain.
