1.10.08

The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain

Since I moved to Vancouver on August 26th, 2004:

MAX TEMP : 29 °C
MAX TEMP. DATE May.17 2008
MIN TEMP : -12 °C
MIN TEMP. DATE Nov.28 2006
PRECIP ACCUMULATION 5038.1 mm

From August 27 , 2004 to October 1 , 2008 - Vancouver Airport

Got that? The max temp I experienced in that time period was 29°C and the min was -12°C. But the kicker is that OVER 5 METERS OF RAIN have fallen on Vancouver since I moved here. Yep, OVER 5 METERS!

Fun little toy Rocco found, available at The Weather Network. Go to your city and immediately below today's forecast is a button for Historical Data. Enter the start date of the period you're interested in, or just the date you want to see. Once that data loads you have the option to enter an end date. Unfortunately their idea of "historical" only goes back to 2001. That day really changed things, didn't it?

Go play.
