Let us stipulate that my home weather records are subject to what Tversky and Kahneman would likely call “the law of small numbers“. Which is to say that, when I tell you May is the driest month of the year around here, you should suspect my statistical reasoning. That said, it is factually correct to say that, in my backyard, over the 12 years I’ve been keeping data, May has been the driest month.
- May – 0.22 inch (average 0.28)
- water year to date (since Oct. 1) – 5.07 (average 4.58)
