RAINFALL measured from Feb. 5-11 totaled 7.35 inches at the Mountain Democrat compared to the 139-year average for February of 6.42 inches. The storm brought the South Fork of the American River roaring below the Mosquito Bridge. The 9.66 inch total for the rain-year that began July 1 is 35 percent of what should accumulate by the end of February and 24 percent of the season average. Other rain gauges at higher elevations collected more for the storm totals as of Feb. 10: 8.82 inches in Swansboro and 11.73 inches measured by George Osborne in Camino. Susan Frederick, west of Placerville measured 5.85 inches in the 24-hour period that ended Feb. 9. It was only the second time in 40 years of collecting rainfall stats at her ranch that that had happened. Democrat photo by Krysten Kellum
