A vital cog in what makes Virginia so beautiful is our abundant foliage, and the lifeblood of that is of course rain. Yet, we sometimes seem to get so much rain for days on end (and this occurs frequently over the course of a year), that we can grow a little weary of the dreary.
With an annual average of well over 40 inches of precipitation, our region certainly falls in the top percentiles for rainfall nationwide. Keep this in mind next time we go through a drought. Nature always compensates eventually.
What’s your opinion? Do you love the rain, or would you prefer a climate more akin to Phoenix?
