It's been raining here for the last week which is fantastic! I've added a new gadget to the blog which is our rainfall tally for the year - it's under 'today's weather'. I researched the average weather for this area and we're well below our normal rainfall total for the first six months of the year.
Our average rainfall for the year is 569.2mm or almost 23 inches. So far we've only had 129mm or just over 5 inches. We should also have rain for 105 days of the year, whereas we've had rain for only 15 days so far this year.
I'll add the rainfall totals as the year progresses. Let's hope we get closer to our average!
