  • Let’s get this started, we need it.

  • Started? We’ve gotten over 10″ since sept…are you new here?

    • Are you? We have had less rain this year, then the same time last year.

      • Lost Croat Outburst

        Correcto-mundo. And last season, totally, had more rain than the year before for Humboldt, but still inadequate. Keep hoping, but so far, not good.

    • Pretty new. I’ve only lived here since 1950.

    • Apparently your the newbie there puddin.

      Where the hell have you been? 10 inches since September? Ridiculous. Maybe 6 inches at woodley Island since July. We’re still desperate. The creeks are clear and low and salmon are floundering. Log off the damn computer and go look at a river. Are you even in California?

      The big-deal rain last night (12-1) put another quarter inch on top of the other quarter inch. BFD. Better rain tonight.

  • Bundle up,batten down the hatches,start a fire in your fireplace hot cocoa and stay away from the roads.i have to stop and get candles.be safe all

  • 10″ Ain’t enough to bring the fish up! Bring it! cause “I’m still thirsty”!

  • First real Humboldt winter in 4 years if Im remembering correctly.

    • Lost Croat Outburst

      Please explain. Are you new? What makes you think this is the real winter yet? Talk to us in the spring if we get plenty of rain. So far, this ain’t it. Everybody talks rain and we get almost nothing. Still in a major drought.

  • 6.75 inches near Blocksburg as measured by a rain guage. That’s a drop in the bucket compared to what we need, but last year San Francisco received less than 4 inches of rain, so we’ve got more than that already. Give thanks, and hopefully the rain in Spain falls mainly on the Emerald Triangle.

    • Lost Croat Outburst

      Yeah, but SF gets maybe half the rain we get in any average year. That’s why this is a mega-drought.
