27 October 2017: Much Needed Rain Has Little Effect On Clary Lake Water Level

We just received 5.15″ of rain in a little over 2 days which, had we not been suffering under drought conditions, would have brought the lake up close to two feet or more. However because so much of the rainfall ended up soaking into the ground and not running off into the lake, the water level has only come up 7.44″ yielding a pathetic runoff multiplier of about 1.4X. Now that the ground is pretty much saturated, we should get more bang for the buck from the next rain storm due in this coming Sunday and Monday.
