A Weathered 2008

Well it is the end of the year. I don't know about you, but I have gained a lot of weather memories this year, including the "spring forward snow storm" in March, which brought 18 inches of snow, to beautiful storms in the plains to the "summer of rainbows", which brought a lot of high precipitation storms and still plenty of sunshine, and a very snowy autumn. Also including recent events such as more rainfall and major flooding in nearby towns and strong winds across the region. I would have to say that 2008 has been well weathered and is going out with a big chill.

Kitchener-Waterloo has made its third wettest on record since records have been kept in 1915, with 1,160.7 mm recorded at the University of Waterloo weather station. It was just shy of the record set in 1985 of 1,186.4 mm.
