Blake Garden has been keeping rainfall records since 1965. This year we have measured some late and heavy rains at the garden. Whereas 2 months ago it seemed bleak, now our measured totals for the year have topped 27.78 inches, which exceeds the mean measurement of 26.25 inches. Drought still remains a concern for California though, as the Sierra snowpack for March 2012 was way below normal.  Take a look at The State of the Climate maps of the USA at http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/sotc/drought/ for further information about drought nationwide. Links to 2012 Blake rainfall pdf & xls files : Blake Garden Rainfall Chart 1965-2012 pdf file Blake Garden Rainfall Averages 1965-2012 pdf file
