2008 Water Year Summary (Maximum Catalog)

Water Year Summary
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.

Michael - I too love their instruments. I'm partial to analog indicators anyway. Planning of getting some? You write as if you joined their sales staff ;-) You all have a great Lord's Day!

Eddie~

would LOVE to get some Maximum equipment. Hopefully one day! If I could be a dealer for them and Davis, I'd be set!

It is a business idea that is worth consideration. Installations, service, sales, etc.
