Rain, Rain Go Away

It seems that 2011 marked Harrisburg’s wettest year in a long time.  The city was said to have encountered a record-breaking 73.73 inches of wet weather in 2011. Apparently it wasn’t all snow (if that were the case we’d be digging our way out of 61 feet of it!).  The average amount of precipitation per year for the city is 40.66 inches, so 2011 really did witness a lot more. So I’m hoping that this is going to be the end of it although it does seem that since we’ve only just hit January there are probably some even wetter days ahead over the next couple of months.

It’s fun.  Well, at least the kids like it.  I guess it’s probably time for me to invest in a decent umbrella though. I found a nice one online – and it’s very masculine-looking – I wouldn’t want one that will make me look effeminate; that certainly wouldn’t go down well with the kids.  I may get it from Macy’s though next time I’m at the mall as it sells there and for sure the Harrisburg Macy’s will be carrying it during this wet weather.  Either way hopefully by the end of this week I’ll have it.  I don’t like the thought of going out in this weather without it!

Happy Rainy Days from Harrisburg!
