Another Rain Record for 2012

This year had now taken all the rainfall records apart from the driest month. June this year recorded the most rain in a month, July the wettest day and now Wednesday took the highest rainfall intensity record with 151.6mm/hr at 17:02.

All these records can be checked out here.

Wednesday hadn’t started off too badly with some sunshine first thing, before it clouded over mid morning followed by some light rain early in the afternoon. Then around tea time came the deluge.

Luckily for us it didn’t last for long.

On the plot Tuesday I watered in our newly planted lettuce plants and gave our recently planted winter brassicas some water. If only I’d known what was to come I needn’t have bothered - but that’s gardening for you.
