Around 5pm, the rain finally let up and we are now in a temporary lull. The forecast, however, shows at least a couple more storms on the way. I wouldn't be surprised if we got over 4 inches of total rainfall up here on the plateau just from this first storm.
If I had any doubts about the prospects of an El Nino before, well I don't anymore. We definitely need the rain, but this deluge must be very worrisome for those folks living in the burn areas. I pray that they will be safe and their homes spared from mudslides.
