Since extended my mast a few feet to catch the wind better.

Rainfall since 1999
Since 1999 when my father-in-law Ken gave me a rain gauge,
I have pretty well kept a constant record of rain fall on the backyard. I shall endeavour
to keep this page updated. The gauge was affixed to the NE corner of the bungalow,
about 2.5m up. Now it is on the clothes line where I can reach it easily
Data goes into a spreadsheet, add additional information,
graphed as follows of what has happened
locally since 1999.
The rainiest months are April,
From the graph below, the rainiest years are seen as
2007, driest 2006 and 2005.
Can anyone else offer an explanation for the cycle
cribbed from the mean moving average?
I can make out a cycle of roughly three
years, and decreasing peak trends...
The Average Monthly rainfall is appearing to drop
off since the mid 2000's in this graph.
