    format is date, 24hr time, YTD rainfall in inches

    Soils are super saturated. We are getting rockslides and tree fall, walking on the trails feels like walking on a wet sponge

    i can relate, in october of 06, we had a torrential nor'easter come through and dump 18-20" in a 24hr period.
    needless to say there was severe flooding and washout.
    what REALLY sucked was i JUST had three dump trucks of dirt delivered to build berms and dj's. at least i got it relatively cheap because i don't want to think about how much just washed away down the ravine behind my house.

    we went though a storm like that in 1981. A big cold front came sweeping down out of the arctic and tapped into a sub tropical moisture plume from Hawaii aka the Pineapple express. The storm front stalled over the Santa Cruz mountains and just pumped moisture in for 24 hrs. The lowlands got 24" and up in the mountains we got 36" in 24 hours....

    It took years to repair all the flood damage to the bay area

    No, I dont want to know.
    (Send some of it south to me...I am tired of blue skiies all the time. We can take some of the moisture off you hands.)

    looks like a typical summer afternoon in florida.
    i remember when i first moved to socal it was during El nino. i didn't know that rain for a week straight was abnormal for the lower left coast and went surfing. i couldn't figure out why i was the only one out in near perfect surf....i mean, east coast water is usually a greenish brown color anyway so it didn't seem that different to me.
    then i got really sick ;)
