2022 Goes Out with a Deluge

As of about 10 PM PT this evening, Mariposa has received over 4″ of rain today . . . over 10″ this week . . . 18″ this month . . . with a grand total of almost 28″ of rain this year.

December has been wet. Very wet.

Mariposa averages 32″ of rainfall a year, but during the drought (since we’ve been here), rain has been scarce. So these December rains have been a godsend.

Happy New Year!

Seconds 28 to the end – New Year’s Eve

It rained so much on New Year’s Eve, that I had to videotape from the road. The water was moving too fast to get closer.

When it rains it pours? Yep.

Our last two Decembers have been wet months and this December looks no different.

Currently, it’s rained about 8 inches so far which is nearly half the total rainfall for this year.

We don’t see this often (actually it’s the 1st time)
