Things are getting wetter…

Overnight rainfall boosted October’s precipitation total to 7.96 inches, enough to make this the second-wettest October on record in Champaign-Urbana. And there’s still an outside chance that predicted heavy rains today could make October 2009 the record-setter for most rainfall. The record is 9.01 inches, set in 1941.

—— From today’s News-Gazette

I’m thinking it’s rained more than an inch already today, so I’ll bet we’ve already set the record. Also in the article: “So far this month in Champaign-Urbana it has rained 20 of 30 days.” I had guessed 22 or 23, but I guess it hasn’t been quite that bad.
