2015: The Year of Crazy Weather

What a crazy weather year 2015 was when we had 25 inches of rain for the first 6 months of the year. We then went for a record 115 days in a row with virtually no measurable rain at all and ended up with over 30 inches of rain for the last 3 months of 2015. According to the National Weather Service 2015 was the third wettest year on record for us. This is Texas after all and there is just no set pattern to our weather here. Who knows what is in store for 2016! The only thing we can be pretty certain of is that it will be hot in July and August. The rest is just waiting and seeing.
