In San Diego, January 10th, from Janine: “Just finished dinner at our favorite restaurant. As we walked out it was raining. A light sprinkle.” And January 11th: “And…. It rained gently all day long. Also I heard it rained all of last week in Israel.”
I checked and it did!
And in Australia:
“It took nearly half a century, but the wait was worth it. Hard hitting, soaking rain fell from the sky, breaking records in outback New South Wales.
“It was the most amount of rain received at the University of NSW Fowlers Gap Arid Zone Research Station since records began 45 years ago.
“Professor Ian Acworth of the UNSW Connected Waters Initiative Research Centre said it was both surprising and exciting to see such levels at Fowlers Gap, 112 kilometres north of Broken Hill in the state’s far west.
” ‘We got two major bursts of rainfall,’ he said. ‘Sixty-seven millimetres the first day, and 120 millimetres the second day. One after the other like that is really quite unusual.’ ”
And there has been a great deal of rain in Malawi, southeast Africa and Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Sao Paulo has been in the area’s worst drought in 8 decades and Malawi is “one the world’s least developed countries“, according to Wikipedia, “with a high prevalence of HIV/Aids which is a drain on the labour force and government expenditures“.
