Please add stats and thought here

Data from met Office 1-28th December ( it did at first include Newton Rigg but when challenged by darren they dropped it as they had made some errors )

My December total so far is 304.5mm exceeding the record in November of 293.6mm.
111.2mm of which came over Christmas. No wonder Lancashire flooded!

Hey been a while,
Anyway my total, so far, for December is 322mm, which makes it the wettest month since records began, admittedly that was only in 2010. :D
