Silver Lake Stormwatch: December 18

rain1219Little lax and late in getting the latest water fallings posted. I snapped this picture of our backyard precipitometer yesterday morning of the most recent rainfall that fell mostly Monday night into Tuesday morning. Once again, a very workmanlike total — a 32nd below 1.25 inches. Better than the previous two systems, but gone this season it seems are the storms of last’s where I’d more regularly tally up two-plus — even three — inches dropped at a time. Oh well. Every little bit helps.

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."
