Joseph Sanger had never seen a small town in Fresno County named in his honor, but in 1887 he attended a Yardmasters' Association. At that meeting, a group of railroad officials informed him that they had named a town in Yosemite County after him.
A letter requesting information referred to Miss Sanger, who had given up her job as a nurse at San Francisco General Hospital. She wrote: 'A friend of hers who has traveled the West has returned with a glowing account of a small town in Fresno County, California that bears my name. The history of the naming of this city can be read in a letter to the editor in the May / June 1887 issue of the American Journal of Natural History.
Sanger's location in California's Central Valley gave him a unique climate with high temperatures, low humidity and high rainfall, as it was the only place in the United States with such high rainfall. In Sanger, winters were cold, wet and partly cloudy, and summers were muggy, dry and clear.

The average amount of precipitation (solid line) accumulated around the day of the year over a moving period of 31 days is shown as the red line in the table above and the green line at the top of this post show. The amount of precipitation accumulated over a period of 31 days around the relevant days is also shown in this graph, which shows the average and increasing degrees per day over the course of a year from the first day to the end of July.
The ribbons (yellow and grey) show the average and increasing degrees per day during the year from the first day to the end of July. The ribbon indicates the total amount of precipitation that has accumulated over a period of 31 days around the relevant days of a year.
The lightly tinted areas around the borders are the hours spent day and night between the first day of the year and the end of July. Independent values were calculated for the perceived temperature, precipitation, wind speed and wind direction. These values are combined into a single hourly composite score, which is then aggregated for each day, calculated on average over the analysis period of a year, and smoothed out.
