My grandpa said that if you watch the weather the first 12 days of the new year, you will know what the weather will be like for the year. Here is my "official" experiment!
|Watering can and Begonias--2009|
Wind: 9 mph up to 32 mph
Precipitation: wet stuff--rain! Officially 2.11"
Sky: Cloudy and Overcast!
Today was fantastic day to stay indoors, under a blanket, reading a book, or any other favorite rainy-day activities. It's been so long since we've had a long soaking rain. So to recap--it was very unlike the photo I chose to represent September!
Prediction for September 2011
I predict September 2011 will be a little abnormal temperature-wise and maybe normal rain-wise. We actually got a lot more rain at the house...almost 3.50". Also, the temperatures surprise me somewhat because it certainly felt colder when I would open the door to peek outside. So perhaps the month of September will have nice temperatures but will still feel more like football weather! It will be interesting to see.
