When the rain comes . . .

Last week the Post noted that Denver was .1 of an inch away from the record for June rainfall. Don't know if we made it (the Post, natch, didn't follow up), but it rained at least 22 days in the month, and every day so far in July. I've watered stuff once this season, and that was back in mid-April. Normally I'd have watered a dozen times by now, at least.

Again, I can't seem to find them with the Post's world-class search function, but they had a couple of articles last winter with climate experts (uh-huh, uh-huh) predicting a drought this spring and summer.

I liked this from the piece:
The last time Denver saw this much rain in June was 1882, when 4.96 inches of moisture was collected in a rain bucket, setting the present record.
Better than climate modeling, for sure. Oh, and if you're not aware of it, the best climate blog on this poor, misunderstood planet is WattsUpWithThat.
