Final storm total 10.75 inches
measured in my rain gauge in Fullerton in north Orange County after six days of almost continuous rain. That's the most I have ever seen in one storm since I lived in California. The previous record that I actually observed was 7 inches in four days.
The good thing was the rain was very evenly distributed with no really strong cloudbursts so most of it sank in so next year should be a bumper year for southern California gardeners.
