Despite a low rainfall total, the crew proceeded with the sampling event with the intent of using these data as a "wet season baseline".   The rain did finally begin to fall lightly at 13:30 and continued through the last of our sites two hours later.

Due to the rainfall delay the crew was unable to visit the last site, Upper Santa Rosa Creek, and still make the 16:00 deadline set by the lab for sample delivery.  The crew was able to visit all of the other sites, and the following are observations from this sampling day (if a site has no comments, there was nothing unusual to report).
