It's a Record!

By Gardenamateur

This is going to seem a bit tragically dull, but here's a photo of my rain gauge this morning. It's a new record, 102mm in one day, or four inches, just beating our previous record of 100mm in one day, set in October 2009
It's a record!My rain gauge only goes up to 150mm, so if it ever overflows overnight, we'll know it has been truly wet. Gosh, who would've ever thought I'd need a bigger rain gauge. But until that day arrives, I'll stick with my slowly yellowing old plastic gauge.
I have mentioned Eric Olthwaite before, and so the best way to celebrate our record rainfall, which I am sure would have fascinated young Eric, is to play a bit of Eric musing about one of his favourite subjects – precipitation. (He was also inordinately fond of shovels, too. And black pudding!)
