This morning I talked with Matthew over at the National Weather Service over on Woodley Island about this past weekend’s rain.

When I spoke with the office on Friday, they said we were 18 inches below normal. It rained a lot this weekend. I can tell you anecdotally that rain filled up a wheelbarrow I had out in my back yard to the top. So I was a bit surprised to learn that they recorded just under 2 inches. Normal rainfall for this time of year is about 25 inches; we are at 8.18, according to their data. However, by midweek another wet storm is coming.
