We received an unusually wet storm for this late in the Spring. The satellite image shows a system resembling a strong winter storm. For about 24 hours we had steady and heavy rain, especially in the Santa Lucia Mountains. Big Creek watershed was at the top of the list for precipitation counts for the entire central coast with Mining Ridge at 4,760′ elevation reaching 8.82 inches between Friday and Sunday, June 3-5. Highlands Peak (2,500′) got 3.59 inches and Whale Point (600′) received 1.82 inches. Feynner had to tie the foot bridge log at the beach again to keep it from going out to sea as the creek rose quickly. Not something we expected in June!
