Silver Lake Stormwatch – March 6-8

rain0308I didn’t have much initial hope at the beginning of this latest storm. By the end of the first day, barely a quarter inch had collected in our backyard precipitometer. But something told me to leave things be and sure enough, then came Thursday’s delivery, which pushed the level up near the two-inch mark. That was followed by the unsettled conditions as the storm moved out Friday, which finished things up at just under two and a quarter –  I’m calling it 2.20 inches, officially.

Unlike the previous storm of February 19, which didn’t land enough wet stuff to push us out the the 16″ range, this one had juuuuuuuust enough to climb up into the 19″ zone for the season.

March 6-8: 2.20″
Season Total: 19.07″

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."
