Follow the raindrops from the top of Spring Mountain down York Creek into St. Helena. Cain received more than a foot of rain over the span of two weeks in March, so the creek has swollen to the edges of its banks. In some years, we’ve seen even twice as much water in our creeks. This is not uncommon for the North Coast — rain comes in from the Pacific in waves. So far we have received over 40 inches for this season beginning in October.
