Soggy October Ends

Plenty of clouds and lots of rain highlighted the end of October and the trend kept going through November 1.   RIC got a trace of rain or more for 10 of the last 11 days.  

In sticking with our weather patterns, the boom will go to bust.  The chance of soaking, all day rains looks to be pretty low for the next 2 weeks.  Hopefully this will let all those leaves dry out before we have to rake them up.

Here are the numbers:  October 1-22:  had only 0.86″ of rain while Oct. 23rd- November 1 produced 3.81″. 

This week’s sun will be welcome!

    I thought I was having problems with a wet basement (water table) — turns out my son just left the water hose on for five days. KIDS!!!

    Unlike reservoirs which fill up right quick…it takes about 90 days for rain to reach the water table.

    Hi Andrew!

    I’m the music teacher at a local school. We are performing a musical about weather and would love for you to record a message to the students for the beginning or end of our show. It’s a week from tomorrow.

    It would really make it extra special. Thanks!

    What is the current water table level? All the rain must have helped a great deal, right?

    It was at my house in the near West End of Richmond. Rained for 2 days straight every 3 days since April. My back yard has still not dried out..

    I wonder where all this rain was from about last May 1st until about September? We hardly got any rain at my house for 4 almost 5 months outside of a meager 10 minute drizzle like once or twice.
