First big 2014 rain soaks SLO County

February 3, 2014

rainRainfall finally arrived in San Luis Obispo County on Sunday, but not nearly enough to compensate for three years of drought.

Santa Margarita was one of the wettest spots with 1.1 inches of rain. Shandon received the lowest rainfall with only .23 inches.

A weak storm system could bring additional rainfall on Thursday.

Nevertheless, a strong ridge of high pressure over California that has been blocking Pacific storms since December is still in place.

Inches of rain that fell from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday:

Arroyo Grande: 0.30

Atascadero: 0.59

Camp San Luis: 1.02

Los Osos: 0.78

San Simeon: .39

Santa Margarita: 1.10

Templeton: 0.66

I washed my truck on Saturday so you can all thank me for the rain.


Answer to prayer, finally? Then the Hebrew God of the Christians has been playing a terrible trick on them for the last three years with hardly any rain at all.

I still say that Jerry Brown should put together a task force to find that elusive ONE Christian that truly believes in Jesus and the Christian Doctrine to pray us out of this drought as the passages below so dictate.

Jesus stated; “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, BELIEVING, ye shall receive.” (Matthew 21:22)

Jesus stated; “What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, BELIEVE that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” (Mark 11, 24)

Ted, I gotta tell you, you come off as a Pharisee, you, know the brood of vipers. Sorry

Answer to prayer

Nice sentiment you posted, B_C_P, but are you certain your cyclic is in trim? If it was an answer to prayer it woulda rained months ago, over and over instead of making us all freak out about no range grass. And, one rain doth not a pasture make. Let us hope there soon cometh more.

Well, I didn’t pray for this until last Saturday, so I’m OK with the timing.
