It is pouring here in North Phoenix, and we have had another inch of permanent drought so far out of this storm. In the last three months we have had more than our average annual rainfall.

    We got 1/2 an inch in the SE valley. Hopefully we will continue to get what my limited experience – resident since 1990 – would call a normal Jan/Feb wet season. That 5+ inches last year was painful.

    The best part is that the Rim is getting snow. Hope the temps stay low enough for a nice melt this spring.
