Yes, it has been wet around these parts. Stats include:
- 10.39 inches this month which is 5.58 inches ABOVE normal.
- 15.62 inches since October 1 (the meteorological rain year start) which is .16 inches ABOVE normal.
For this and more, I am grateful.
The bike rides in have been wet, but mostly quite enjoyable. I had one ride home with a slashing wind from the south that was strong enough to slap my cheeks with the stings of rain. It made me howl at times. Of course, going home is nice, because it’s, well, home: dry socks, pants, warmth and family. Yep, good times out west, that’s for sure . . . .
