Monthly Rainfall & Temperatures

We only began measuring rainfall in March, 2012. This has been a period of  very low precipitation, with our area in the worst drought recorded.  For Mother Nature's Backyard, the drought  continued through November, 2016.

We got almost 9 inches of rain in January - more than we have gotten all year in most recent years. February was also a great rain month.  Here are the rainfall totals in Mother Nature's Backyard as of 2/28/17.
