Above my front door...

Take a look at the instantaneous rate.

With 20 (!!!!) NWS alerts at that time.

Here is the last 24 hours...

With more than 28.6" of rain so far and the wet season coming up...  I've had ENOUGH!

2005 was such a year of lots of rain spread out... nobody remembers because not much happened worth remembering in contrast to February 1998, January 1997, January & March 1995, et al.

Shades of 97....!

Here's hoping that's the worst we get, eh?

PLENTY of water up Butte County way; many drainages are not only running full but running over.  Roads that don't normally flood are flooding; and oh, joy, the 'hundred year flood bridge' and culvert they just put in up the road from me is overrun.  Badly.

Much as I appreciate an effective rain dance, a bit of relaxation about delivery wouldn't hurt my feelings a bit--just spread it OUT a touch!
