A Rainfall Study
By J. M. Lydgate.
The Grove Farm Plantation has
kept continuous and uniform records
of the rainfall for the last 36 years.
Running so far back these records are
particularly interesting and valuable.
There are numerous records of the
later years, but very few of the
earlier. By the courtesy of the Plan
tation, I have secured a copy of these
records; a study of them brings out
these interesting facts.
The average rainfall during these
36 years has been 48.23 inches, the
highest being 72.81 in 1907, and the
lowest 16.38 In 1891. This gives an
lea of the great range of the rainfall.
Taken by five year periods the aver
1885 to 1889 45.18 inches
1890 " 1894 42.12 "
1895 " 1899 35.55 "
1900 " 1904 63.03 "
1905 " 1909 53.32 "
1910 " 1914 47.48 "
1915 " 1920 59.37 "
From this it is evident that the
rainfall is not decreasing, as many
people think, the last period being
the highest of the lot. Remembering
the bad roads and difficulties of trans
portation of 20 or 30 years ago, people
are apt to think that it rained a whole
lot more then. But that is a mistake,
so far at least as the Grove Farm re
gion Is concerned.
Not In Cycles
These records indicate that there
is no foundation for the idea that the
rainfall comes in cycles, or that the
wet "or dry years run in periods.
Eighteen hundred eighty-eight had
41.48 inches; 1889 had 26.17; 1890 had
68.31; 1891 had 16.38 and 1892, 42.70.
Two very low years were sandwiched
in between fairly high ones on each
It should be noted however, that
there was a period of very low years
from 1895 to 1900. The average lor
this six years was only 34.77, far below
the general average of 48.23. On the
other hand, the Bix year period from
1915 to 1920 has the phenomenally
high average of 59.37.
Rainfall by Months
The average rainfall by months,
with lowest and highest annexed, is

More Rain in Winter than In Summer
From this it is evident that on the
whole there is a good deal more rain
during the Winter months, October
to March, than during the Summer
months, March to September. As a
matter of fact the ratio is 31.41 to
17.46, or 64.3 per cent in the Winter
to 35.8 per cent in the Summer.
The Summer more Settled
than the Winter
The Summer months are more set
tled and regular than the Winter, with
fewer extreme departures from the
normal. On the whole the Summer
rainfall is not so likely to fly off on
No Regular Rainy Season
But" on the other hand, it is also
true that no single month, Summer or
Winter, can be counted on as a dry
month or a wet month. The follow
ing table will make this more evident.

Any Month the Wettest or Driest
In other words, every single month
of the year may be the very wettest,
or the very driest. And this phenom
enal condition is more abundantly
true of the Winter months. January
is five times as likely to be the wet
month of the year as May, June, July
or August; which is of course just
what we would expect. But January
ia also three times as likely to be the
dry month of the year as April, May,
June, or July; which isn't at all what
we would expect. Similarly March
has nine chances to one over the Sum
mer months for wetness, and two
chances to one for dryness.
March the Wayward Month
March Is the outstanding, erratic,
and fickle month of the year, with
January a close second. December,
