Weather is a popular subject as it affects everyone. Well, our suffering has been rewarded! Vancouverites can now boast that two records have been broken! One is for the most rainy days in a given month, that is 29 of 31 days this January. Secondly, Vancouver also broke a record for amount of rainfall in the city during any January, that is 283.6 millimetres (11.165 inches) at the airport. The North Shore gets much more, though I haven't seen the numbers yet, and the mountains have lots of snow.
We almost broke a similar record earlier this winter, but the weather improved for just that one last day that was to break the record. It was amazing how upset Vancouverites were! I suppose it's a desire for a reward for surviving. Now we can be happy. Welcome to the rainforest. Let's go count the snowdrops now as we await sunny spring days.
