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?
