We only began measuring rainfall in March, 2012. Both 2012 and 2013 were years with very low precipitation. In fact, 2013 is a record low and our only precipitation in January, 2014 came from dew. But February and March have produced some rain, as they often do in very dry winters. Here are the rainfall totals in Mother Nature's Backyard as of 3/31/14.We began measuring weekly temperatures the first week of July, 2012. Here are the minimum and maximum recorded temperatures as of 12/30/12.
