Start Date: 2/12/2018 - End Date: 2/12/2018
Last week was dry. No rain since Jan 19, and just 0.04" then. Still having to irrigate anything but drought-tolerant plants - quite unusual for this time of year. We've had many days of mild Santa Ana winds with humidities in the 20% range. Lots of dry vegetation which could support fire if it got started. Hillsides haven't turned green very much, as they usually do by February. CoCoRaHS Report from Station #La Mesa 2.6E on 2/12/2018
