Goodbye 2005

2005 will be remembered as a very dry year for folks in Southeastern Iowa. The featured image shows monthly rainfall estimates for 2005 (click on image for a legible view). The months of April, May, and June were really dry in that area while the northern tier of counties got large amounts of rainfall. A toast to 2006 hoping for equitable rainfall for all!
