Raining. In San Jose. In The Drought.

At this moment there is rain outside my window. Not a sprinkle. Rain. In San Jose. In The Drought.

On average, not unheard of… Note the “0.03 inch” in the “range” below (Almanac values from Wunderground

Don’t know what to make of it. A “normal” May has essentially no rain. Sunshine and warmth often start in March or April, with dry until November possible. (Occasionally a shower in August. Usually rain starting the last week of October in my experience). But MAY? Rain? In a drought?

It’s a cold, dank, miserable day more like a typical Fall day than Spring on the edge of Summer… This is not the Global Warming I was promised.

Update some hours later

Still a wet soggy day, on and off. Glad for the rain, but really… this is Spring in a drought?

Have a screen cap of the weather:

    One should not complain about being Blessed with a little rain, specially in a California Drought! Here in the northern foothills we are working hard in the fields under cool overcast skies, another blessing.;-) pg

    Not complaining about the rain. Glad for it. Complaint is about the Global Warming lie that promissed me a warm sunbath, especially in a drought, and instead delivered a fall to winter like day…
