Where’s the rain?

A couple weeks ago, I was walking my dogs and noticed that my two ponds still were not joined.  Through the summer they are always divided by a land bridge but usually by mid-November we’ve had enough rain that the two become one.  This made me think that I could only remember two sou’easters coming through our place this fall which seemed unusual.  In fact, I couldn’t even remember the last time we had rain and the mountains which we see out our front window were remarkably barren; no rain = no snow.

I decided to do a little checking on the weather data, just out of curiosity (yes, I’m like that), and my suspicions were confirmed – we’re having an incredibly dry fall.  Check out my chart for the figures; we’ve had less than half the rain we normally get.  I guess that means January and February will be full on monsoon season.

Merry Christmas and enjoy the dry weather while you can!
