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

Almanac for May 7, 2015

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…
