2008 has been a very interesting year with our weather. Just completed the Water Year Summary and the actual dates are from October 2007 through September 2008. What is a 'water year summary' you may ask? Well, thank you for asking, it is a study of rainfall to see at what percentage of normal do we stand for a given period. We're studying a 12 month period with the dates above.
We recorded 44.54" of rain and our normal (from 1971-2000) is 57.82" annually. We were about 23% short or 77% of normal.
