The county was again grappling with wet weather over the weekend.

The California Highway Patrol got a report of a rock slide across state Route 78 east of Wynola Road, at the top of the Banner Grade, about 8:20 a.m.

A delivery truck also slid off the road onto a yard, destroying the fencing across Mom's in Wynola last Monday, as the rain began to build.

About the same time, a boulder was reported in traffic lanes at state routes 79 and 76 near Lake Henshaw.

A three-foot boulder rolled into the middle of Couser Canyon Road west of Pala Loma Drive in Valley Center about 7:30 a.m., the CHP said.

The following is a sampling of rainfall in some areas of the county for the 72-hour period ending at noon Friday, according to the weather service: 2.12 inches on Palomar Mountain, 1.61 inches in Julian, 1.42 inches in Fallbrook, 1.29 inches in Oceanside, 1.27 inches in Encinitas, 1.24 inches in Alpine, 1.23 inches in Poway, 1.22 inches in San Ysidro, 1.17 inches in Chula Vista, 1.16 inches in Ramona, 0.70 of an inch at San Diego International Airport, 0.68 of an inch in Solana Beach, 0.67 of an inch at Lake Murray and 0.36 of an inch in La Jolla
