Almost half that total fell in just two months early in the year. February total was 7.05 inches and March was 7.88. Full Story

Hope you all had a great Christmas time.

We had a great time with an Italian theme for the food, the annual Chinese Christmas gift exchange and a good time of visiting. Full Story
