Dry Times 

Wet February boosts rainfall totals

Things are looking up! Humboldt County isn't out of the desert just yet, but a wetter-than-average February has the county's year-to-date rainfall totals looking much more respectable. When the last drops were counted on Woodley Island, the folks over at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration tell us a total of 6.09 inches of rain fell in February, nearly doubling the 6.47 inches that had fallen July 1 through Jan. 31. Humboldt isn't out of drought watch just yet but there's reason for optimism. Below, track this and last year's precipitation totals as they compare to the drought years of 1976-77 and 1977-78 and the 30-year-average monthly rainfall. Special thanks to NOAA for the data.
