    Average rainfall in Dec+Jan+Feb+March combined = 88.1mm
    Rainfall in last 48 hours = 92mm

    Average yearly rainfall 543.9mm.
    Percentage of yearly rainfall in last 48 hours = 16.9%.

    We'd already broken heatwave records, now we're breaking wet records in the same week...
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.

    Why does it have to sleet on top of a foot of snow? Every step you take and crunch through, it about breaks your foot.

    Been rainy and windy, cloudy and windy, and sunny and windy here in the Seattle area for the past week (usually on the same day, even). Two more fairly large storms to get through this weekend, then it's supposed to be showery and breezy for the next week or so. Seems mother nature is making up for lost time here in the Pacific Northwet.

    I have always thought the weather on our planet is very dependent on sun spot activity. Does anyone have any thoughts on that?

    You're exactly right. And radio propagation most certainly does.

    I would not say 'dependent' -- just one on the many factors.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Just outside of NYC (about 20 miles north of Times Square), it's snowing again. We now have about two solid (frozen) feet of snow laying around; streets are very narrow and intersections are blind. Supposed to warm up after this so that it all can slide off the roofs and we can flood.

    As they used to say upstate, "another ten inches of flurries..".

    Yes. But I'll save myself some typing, this guy says it far better anyway: http://news.psu.edu/story/141165/200...manac-accurate

    The Farmers' Almanac's Web site explains that its forecaster (referred to only by his pseudonym, Caleb Weatherbee) uses a "top secret mathematical and astronomical formula, that relies on sunspot activity, tidal action, planetary position and many other factors" to predict weather sixteen months in advance for seven different U.S. climate zones.

    Sounds interesting and I use a similar formula to decide when to work in my darkroom.

    Can you believe this?--a week ago we had a foot and a half of snow, and now it's 75 degrees.
