That was a lot of rain

Woke to rain at 2 a.m. and until just a few minutes ago, it was still falling. The Pacific is 75 degrees, the 1.75 inches of rain that fell downtown overnight shattered the record for not just the day but for the entire month of September, and it all came as we learned the Sierra snowpack is at its lowest level in five centuries.

In the Cove, the beach is gone and boulders swirl in the surf. Kayaks are floating away -- see the red one, suspended in mid-air? No normal, only extremes.
