8.9 mm for me yesterday... which translates into 16 cm of snow!!! Take that, you poor coastal dwellers!

P.S. Only a skiff of snow in Downtown Vernon. Crazy how I got 16 cm at 550m elevation while downtown Vernon at 400m got mostly rain.

That’s a really good ratio. Don’t see it that high here very often.

Sorry, 10.9, but in reality, my Davis weather station has a heater in it, and tends to evaporate out some of the water before it hits the tipping bucket, so I would guess it was probably more like 13 or 14 mm. Maybe higher given it seems fairly heavy, though I did measure last night at midnight because it melted down a bit overnight.

Still not bad considering it was raining 150m below you.

To say yesterday was wet would be an understatement. For the 48 hour period, I ended up at 71mm of rain.

Ooooppppsssss....with all the holiday activities and then the year end ice storm I forgot to post my rainfall total for the month of Dec/17 here in upper Mission 157mm of rain fell, some of it most likely included what melted in the rain gauge from snow and ice.
