gargantuan... (am.02.aug.16)>

It has been raining almost continuously since just after 5:00pm yesterday.  Since that time, I've recorded 5.81" (14.8cm) of rain -- just over 2" (5cm) of that has occurred since midnight, so it will go on the tally for today (Tues).  And even more impressive: the rainfall total just since Saturday has been 10.62" (27cm).

There could be some landslides and road wash-outs somewhere around our general area, due to the huge rainfall amounts on already saturated ground, so be aware and careful if you have to be traveling.

Early this morning I had a low temp of 61.5F (16.4C), which is the coolest temperature I've recorded this monsoon season.  

Currently, it's 63ºF/17ºC, with cloudy skies and some light drizzle.  Humidity is 90%.
