OK, Thanks For The Rain, Bye-Bye

In rainfall terms, the "season" lasts from July 1 of last year to June 30 of this year. Makes sense, since California gets most of our rain in the middle of that period.

But enough is enough.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, rainfall in The City has reached 135% of normal; in San Jose, the total is 149% of normal. More than 8 inches of rain fell in March alone. And rain is in the forecast for at least 2 more weeks. Ex-CUSE me, but, like, didn't anyone get the memo that this is, like, Cali-FOR-nia?

On the other hand, I suppose it could be worse: L.A.'s rainfall this season is 259% of normal... in other words, more than Seattle.
