Rainfall History

I know… it has the look of a grade school art project. Please forgive that!  Over the last eight years we have kept rainfall records and this is one way of putting them together. Although this winter has been dry, the early spring has brought a lot of rain, 9.3 inches in March alone. Often we receive large amounts of our rainfall in a month, as you can see from the spikes in the past (each year is color coded, with the current year a broken orange line with stars on the monthly totals). Some Napa averages would say we are past our average rainfall now, but we often get several inches more on our ranch than the reported numbers.
