a bit of rain

We had a bit of rain early this week. This excellent site provides nice graphical data for Seattle weather. Here's what they show for the rain on Monday:

See that long straight steep section from 9:00 to past 17:00? 8 hours of continuous non-light rain.
I believe this included the rainiest 24 hours ever in Seattle. Compare this to what I believe was the previous record:

(Notice that the vertical scales are not the same.) Around our neighborhood things were just quite wet. Luckily, we've had no flooding or mudslides or any other horrors.

Monday was the only day of this quarter (which ends tomorrow) that Jenni and I took the bus to work instead of walking.
