Winter Arrives In March
We had a wonderful string of sunny, warm and dry weeks in January and February but, thankfully, winter arrived in March. 3+ inches of rain earlier in this week put the first flush to the creeks in the county and San Luis Obispo Creek put up some number for enterococcus bacteria (the EPA indicator for the presence of human waste) that were 60 to 120 times the maximum level for safe contact with the water. This is not unusual for the first heavy rains but it makes today a good day to enjoy the rain and stay out of the water.
