Odile - final rain report

Now that Odile is busy lashing Baja and aiming toward my sister in Phoenix, here are our final rain totals from Odile:

Yesterday it rained off and on, sometimes heavily, for most of the day and we got 5.16"/131mm. That ranks #6 in the Top 10 1-day rainfall records.

The storm total was 6.82"/173mm. That puts it #8 in the Top 10 storm total rainfall record. Not too shabby! This month has 2 of the Top 10 records already.

Yesterday afternoon the arroyo on the south side of town was flowing heavily into the bay. Its level was only a couple inches below the original drain from the Jardin by the small concrete bridge. Any damage reports from the rest of the town? Nothing much posted on the Melaue/Barra Tomzap forum.

Here is the 1-week rainfall accumulation from the TRMM radar satellite. Aren't you glad we were not in the peak of the rainfall zone? (around 28-30"!)

PS, there is already another Invest down in the breeding grounds. I'll keep you posted if it develops more.
