On another note, we have received 2.25 inches of rain so far, this May, making it the second wettest May on record. The 2015 May rainfall was exceeded (so far) only by May 1921 with 2.54 inches of rain! Ironically, relatively little of it is caught for human uses, the area being largely dependent on mountain snowfall over the Summer months. This Winter was warm and dry, thus still leaving the area in the grips of the drought, less a little May reprieve for our gardens, canyons and wildlife, all of which clearly needed the water.
