Stormwatch: November 4

Yesterday’s precipitation totals are in at a hair over an inch, as shown:

I’m calling it 1.0625 inches or 1-1/16th for all you fraction fans. That brings the annual-to-date tally up near  5-1/3 inches or 5.3125 for all you decimal devotees.

I should and will note that yesterday’s rain accumulation from whenever it started late Thursday night/early Friday morning to Friday afternoon at 4:30 p.m. amounted only to 1/4 of an inch (0.25 for all you decimal demanders). At that point an overloaded cell moved in and by the time it passed by 6 p.m. it had dropped more than 3/4 of an inch — 0.75 for all you… agh, enough already.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
