aftermath

Our storm totaled 2.7" of rain before slacking off at last.  Portland checked in with just over an inch.  We had wet storms of this amount in town, but very few!  Definitely an impressive storm total given the extra elevation and fewer tall, storm-blocking hills aligned between us and the ocean.

Tonight is the winter solstice, longest night of the year.  The specific time of solstice was just past 3pm.  Wonder if that is why the neighbors are detonating explosives/ firecrackers and lofting fireworks into very low damp clouds?  We're still getting used to the frequent munitions in the valley, apparently a shooting range - but these were window-rattlingly close.  Oh what fun?
