August, 2012

Some Blue Sky Makes an Appearance


While I have been away from the Crystal Coast for much of the month of August, I have been getting regular readings from my rain gauge.

It is pretty easy to say that August of 2012 has been very different from August of 2011.  On August 9 last year I wrote about how little rain we had seen all summer.  A little less than a week later I wrote about strange stuff falling out of the sky.

Somehow in a summer that saw barely three inches of rain, we got a storm with six tenths of an inch of rain.

Unfortunately I don't have an exact rain total for August 2012.  I do know that it is somewhere north of ten inches of rain.  That comes on top of close to fifteen inches of rain in May, June, and July.  We have gotten over two feet of rain this summer.  read more »
