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″
