We only began measuring rainfall in March, 2012. This has been a period of very low precipitation (La Nina conditions). In fact, 2013-14 has broken the old records; our only precipitation in January, 2014 came from dew. February-April produced some rain, as they often do in very dry winters. Here are the rainfall totals in Mother Nature's Backyard as of 6/30/14. As you can see, we are now fully into the summer dry season, as is normal for this time of year. See the 'Current Photos' page to see what a local native plant garden looks like this time of year.We began measuring weekly temperatures the first week of July, 2012. Here are the minimum and maximum recorded temperatures as of 12/30/12.
