El Niņo comes to Soquel

West Branch of Soquel Creek, 2 Feb 1998

We had about 8" of rain in 24 hours. This is hardly exceptional (18" on 4 Jan 1982 in 24 hours), but the stream rose to a point the steelhead enjoy very much. This and the following three pictures were taken about 10 AM.

Our bedroom open directly onto the stream

This and the following were taken in the afternoon, after another 2" of rain had fallen in about two hours.
