Silver Lake Stormwatch: December 15

rain1215No sooner had I untarped the tortoise hutch and hammock yesterday when clouds started rolling in from the northeast and roiling about and by the time the sun had set sprinkles were upon us again and I was out retarping.

All that redundancy for what amounts to an overnight rainfall amount I’m going to peg at 2.8/8ths of an inch, aka 0.35″ — not even enough to put us beyond the 7″ seasonal milestone.

By way of comparison, on this day last year our backyard precipitometer had already hauled in 13.364″.

December 15: 0.35″
Season Total: 6.97″

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."
