It's raining again

We're having a very wet, but warm, winter. January and February have felt like the soggiest months we've had in a while. The official rainfall total for February 2020 in our area is over 73 mm (just under 3 inches), compared to the annual average for the month of about 50 mm. That's close to 50% over the average for the month.

This photo is from five years ago, early March of 2015. The skies were mostly sunny. March is notoriously a month filled with rain and sleet squalls known as les giboulées de mars. We'll see how it goes this year.


  1. I missed, was simply too lazy to get the camera, glorious sunrises yesterday and today. We’re about as far behind on rain as you are ahead, I think.

  2. Well, the bright side is that all this rain will eventually replenish the water tables, and put some water in dried up brooks and rivers!

  3. We had rain for about 10 hours yesterday and last night. But, I hear the birds chirping out there now, this morning, so I think it has stopped.

  4. mitch, we've been in a drought, but I'm sure this winter has put a dent in that.

    chm, exactly!

    judy, rain is better than snow, I suppose! :)


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
