June washed away

Hopefully the puddles will give way to blue skies

The seemingly non-stop rain in June really added up.

We got just a few drops more than five inches of rain last month, according to the National Weather Service. That's about 34 percent more than in an average June. And we got at least a trace of rain on 15 different days (normal is 11.6 days).

But get this: June 2008 was even rainier than this year's (by almost half an inch). And the rainiest June on record came in 2006 (8.74 inches).

Oh, and: the average high temp for this past June was 74.9 -- about 2.5 degrees lower than normal.


Lies! Damn lies!

It has just seemed so much colder and rainier this year than I remember. Maybe because most of the weekends were rained out? And it does seem like we've had more "violent" rain storms this year in June.

Here's to a sunny and dry July... wait... nevermind (grabs umbrella).

Loving the picture.
