So all of that rain...and what do we have to show for it? An "almost."
June 2009's overcast skies dropped 10.06 inches of rain on Central Park—00.21 inches short of the 2003 record of—quick, figure it out!—10.27 inches.
Oh well. Better luck next time? I should have made this a BAT Challenge....
Anyway, here's the commemorative article from Ralph Blumenthal at The New York Times. And Gothamist has a fun graphic.
