Well, it turns out that we're getting pounded by rain yet again here today, and since it seemed like we've been getting much more rain than usual I decided to get some data on rainfall this year (data from the LA Civic Center via AccuWeather.com):
- Average annual rainfall (July 1 - June 30): 15.3 inches
- Year-to-date rainfall (July 1, 2004 - Jan 9, 2004): 20.25 inches
- Rainfall in the last 2 weeks (Dec. 27, 2004 to Jan 9, 2004): 14.9 inches
(from the LA Times)
Considering that this is the precipitation map for Southern California from just an hour ago, it looks like we'll be getting even more tonight.
Since London's average annual rainfall appears to be around 32 inches a year, maybe we'll actually be leaving cold, rainy Southern California for warm, sunny London.
