The tall, skinny pines are whipping around here, but it's beginning to clear up. We measured about 3.1 inches from the start to the end of this event.

Mark - took a look at the totals from yesterday and today for Floyd County: 4.22, 3.74, 3.82, 3.23, 4.60, and 3.92 inches. I'd guess your 3.1 is due to your mountaintop position but it's still a substantial amount of rain.

With the wind, I'm just waiting to see how many trees fall. So far there have been two 911 calls for trees bringing down power lines. But not for us!

Raining and cool here where I am right now (Brookings, Or), but that isn't really so out of character for this time of the year. However, as I plot my course for Arizona, it seems like there's a lot of cool, rainy weather between here and there.

We're expecting some rain today and tomorrow. I would love to see an inch or two. Except for the rain we had last month, it's been very dry. I can't imagine what would happen around here if we got the kind of rain you've been getting. I'm afraid it would cause major mudslides and flooding.

I should probably get a second rain gauge to calibrate ours. The one we have now uses a tipping bucket. It seems to be in the ballpark, but I have no idea how accurate it really is.

A week later - sorry about that!

Bev - I'd been keeping track of weather systems imposing their preferences upon you, but lost that track. I wonder what it will be like in Bisbee? So far it seems to still be fairly dry and warm.

Robin - You'd laugh to see our slides on the slopes. They usually consist of the upper layer of leaf fall that has been washed downward, exposing the soil underneath. These vast mudslides (leafslides?) are typically a foot or so wide.

Mark - I've never used an automatic, though I've thought about an automated weather station, mainly for the wireless data uploads. That's so cool. I use the CoCoRaHS mandated manual gauge, which is a fabulously simple and excruciatingly accurate device.
