Rain, Rain, Rain

9:58 am in Extreme Weather, The Ozarks by Ted Keller

With yesterday’s rain total of 1.58″, our September total jumped to 10.69″. So in one day, we moved from 7th to 4th on the all-time wettest September list for Springfield!

The years ahead of 2010 are 1975, 1986 and 1993 in 3rd, 2nd and 1st.  It would be hard to push into all-time wettest because the 1993 total is 17.46″!  That was the year of the south Ferguson flooding with massive amounts of rain falling in that section of southwest Springfield.
