End of year wrap-up is very satisfying

Sitting at my computer on a rainy day-after Christmas, I’m in the process of doing what I have done every year at this time for the past umpteen years.

Except for a couple of brief showers over the next few months, the next measurable rain occurred on August 24 when we got just over an inch and two months later on October 27 when 1.85 inches fell. Add day after day of triple digit temperatures and it was a summer to forget.
