It was a dark and stormy night

Well, it wasn't all THAT stormy at night, but during the day it was pretty bad.

My weather station recorded 3/4 of an inch (19 mm) of rain in the past 24 hours. About half an inch (12.7 mm) fell in under 15 minutes just after 1 PM yesterday.

It was also quite windy, with gusts up to 23.4 knots (26.9 MPH, 43.3 KPH or Beaufort Force 6) and a wind run of 128.6 Nautical Miles (148 statute miles or 238.2 km)

And we really only caught the tail end of the storm, Northern California was hit much worse.

We had a similar amount of rain yesterday, which, given the date, is just as peculiar. Snow in January? Sure. Driving rain accompanied by roaring thunder, though, is as rare as the proverbial hen's teeth.
