Silver Lake Stormwatch: April 26

‘Twas another quiet storm, falling almost silently throughout yesterday’s early morn. But in the the end this  soaker brought upon our Silver Lake backyard another 1.5 inches. Will it be the last one of the season? If so, the total inches caught by our hard-working precipitometer between the first rain in October and now stands at 29.07.

Personally I’d love to see another system or systems drop at least 0.93 inches just so I can report hitting the 30-inch milestone.

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."
