    Perhaps Woodley Island is not a very representative spot for measuring rain in Northern Humboldt…my rain gauge recorded 2.25″ in Dows Prairie between Thursday and Saturday afternoon and another 0.75″ from Saturday afternoon through Sunday. I was up in Klamath all day Saturday and it was pouring buckets from morning through mid-afternoon, so I’m guessing they had even more up there (as usual).
