Southland Gets Soaked
Three storms wallop the LA area.
The first of three storms arrived Friday night dumping over 5 1/4″ … yes that’s right. 5 1/4″ inches of rain here on the urban homestead fell in a few hours overnight Friday/Saturday morning. One cell must have parked itself right ontop of us. Friday night the rain was coming down in sheets the storm was so intense, we hadn’t had rain like that in ages. And nature wasn’t over yet. The next storm slowly moved late Saturday and giving us about 1″ inch overnight. It’s still raining as I post and another storm expected to bring showers throughout the day today and into tomorrow (Monday) morning. Thankfully everything is “right as rain” here on the urban homestead. We so fortunate that we live on high ground, in the the foothills which weren’t touched by the devastating fires this summer. Some areas are on mudslide watch and experiencing hurricane force winds and flooding and we hope all our so cal readers are weathering out this storm with little or minimal damage.
Final rain tally totals will be posted as soon as the last storm blows through this afternoon/evening. But preliminary totals stand 6 1/4 inches of rain since Friday night. Amazing to think that in three days, the storm’s brought double the amount of rain we received all last year.
I believe I can see the vegs growing before my very eyes. Nothing like a good, soaking rainstorm – it works magic on the garden. What a wonderful blessing.
