    If the forecast holds up, it looks like the kind of rain we WANT. Two days of light drizzle. Not enough to run off the surface, just enough to get the dust off the leaves and settle everything down.

    I consider it the beginning of @kioti season :)

    If we can get about 100 days like that through next March, witha couple of decent soakers, we're golden.

    Maybe a surf board would be a better tool in this case, than a mountain bike. :eek:

    "Longer Range outlook for October favors periods of cooler than normal weather with some possible cold storms, during the month. Mammoth will likely get a few periods of snowfall during the month of October."

    I heard up to an inch between Mon-Wed. Hurricane Rosa from Baja.

    Shaping up to be a big debris event around the Holy burn area. Trabuco and HJ are under full evac order.

    The Fern Spring fire dropped 4-5 feet of debris on the creekbed 100 yards wide. That fire was like 1% the size of the recent fire.

    Here in Simi they're forecasting 1.32" Tuesday and .69" Wednesday. Of course those amounts are changing hourly.
