Rainfall data 2012
Rainfall for the year 2012
Feb: 21mm (rain and a bit of snow)
Total for the year: 973.5mm
which is the wettest year I have recorded since I started in 2007!!! I still had to use my hosepipe in March after a really dry spring, and again during a two month dry period from mid July to mid September, so I won't have a low water bill this year. What a shame the rain can't spread itself out and we could have 100mm each summer month and only about 50mm each winter month.... but I have to be grateful that this year we have had a really wet autumn which is replenishing the water table, after two really dry winters in a row.
Previous years' rainfall:
2011: 663.75mm (over a quarter of which fell in December)
