Dry Spell Pushing Toward 6 Months

A few tenths of an inch of rain accompanied the cold front moving through today, but we could use quite a bit more.  Climate stats at BWI-Marshall show a precipitation deficit of 7.85″ since October of last year.

  1. Thank you for the info. My Grandmother grew up on a farm in the Linthicum area 100 years ago. She believed that the moderate day-long winter rains, and especially the soaking snows, provided the “sweet” water in the family well during the following summer. Even with the much paved ground of today, I would assume that this would hold as true today as it was then.
