Insane: My pluviometer (rain gauge) runeth over!

After I checked this morning nine ish.. I had 72mm on the rain gauge for the last 24hrs, which added to the earlier 29 made a total of 101 for a 48 hr. period in February.  Of course they say here "Febrero es loco y Marzo otro poco." but this added to the 474mm for January was really insane.  Right about then when the electricity went off due to a fallen post on the road.. It started REALLY raining.  From 9 a.m. to 7 p.m when I finally got back home my rain gauge was nearly overflown and it only marks up to 140mm and it was at least 1 cm above that so I figure it rained 160mm in 10 hours.  Accumulated total for the year so far is: 598 mm.
