Exceptional Rainfall.

Friends and fans of vast precip, I have good news:

That's month-to-date, through today. Here's year-to-date:

The staff had started to worry that our precip totals, located over there somewhere in the sidebar amidst the dog photos and various borrowed radars, were inflated. Hopeful. On the juice. There was hand-wringing among the interns. Carping about reliability. But I'm here to tell you that the entire team here at ANYLF can, given the fact that early June's five-incher was hyper-local, and this week's almost-three-incher was hyper-hyper local, happily stand behind our nearly thirty-two inches YTD and our nearly ten-and-a-half inches this month. And remember, boys and girls, there are twelve days left of June.

Thanks to the good folks at the Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service wing of the NWS for providing today's radar-estimated precipitation party favors.

Two more items of import before we let you get back to whatever it is you were doing before:

That's the drought, in fast retreat.

And that is yet more rain, trying to come this way, which means that if what you were doing before wasn't tying up the tomatoes, then we recommend a pair of scissors and an old t-shirt and a quick mosey into the back yard. Or maybe a leisurely mosey. Still: what is recommended is a mosey all the same.
