How wet was it Wednesday?

How wet was it Wednesday?
Mud and rock debris over the roadway continue blocking eastbound SR 112 near Rasmussen Creek in Clallam County on Dec. 9, 2010.

Our big squall that rolled through Wednesday morning dropped about 1/2" of rain in the Seattle area, but that was fairly paltry compared to the second wave of heavy rain parked over the San Juan Islands during the evening.

Here are some 24 hour rainfall totals taken from the Community CoCoRahs Network. The numbers after the city are the distance in miles from the center of town that the observer lives. Note that San Juan County is the big "winner":
