I take my rainfall measurements at 7 a.m., so June’s over for me. I’m happy to report that our 0.14 inch (36 cm) of rain puts us over an inch for the Oct-now “water year”! We’re planning a fireworks celebration for later this evening, out by the dry brush in the far back corner of the yard.*
Our 1.14 inches (2.9 cm) for the first nine months of the water year are 24 percent of the long term mean. The last month with above average precipitation here was April 2012.
* This is a joke. There is evidence of a dramatic spike in the number of people burning stuff down around July 4.
