After a record-setting month for rain in November, we just did it again at RIC. December’s precipitation (rain + melted snow and ice) adds up to 7.92″ which tops December 1905 which recorded 7.10″
All this moisture has groundwater at historically high levels, leaving soggy soils across the region. It’s not all bad news– check out my story I filed last week about how this rain/snow is coming at just the right time to help us next year.
