You did though have plenty of rain in August
That is only a relative thing and you are correct in saying we did get quite a bit of rain here during August in comparison with what just about everyone else was reporting on here then.
However, August 2022 was a very exceptional month in which hardly anyone actually recorded very much in the way of rainfall and so, it was never going to take much for the totals for here to be higher than what was reported for elsewhere as a result.
Furthermore and although the totals for here were quite high during August in comparison with what others were reporting, our totals for here were still below our 1991-2020 August average.
What I am complaining about here is therefore, not any claim that we never actually get any rain, but the fact that our totals are ALWAYS below average (what it all boils down to is the fact that I'm just sick and fed up with that same old outcome all the time).
Occasionally, we might well get an odd day here and there when I will maybe record something like 10mm to 20mm of rain on that particular day, and I would never dispute the fact that this never happens. The big issue that I am raising here though is that this firstly doesn't happen all that happen and even when it does, it just about always then ends up being virtually bone dry here for days on end after that.
As long as that continues to be the case, our totals are always going to be below average in the end and that is the source of my overall frustration in this matter because unless we start to get some monthly totals which are actually above average, we are never even going to be able to begin to make up the overall rainfall deficit and at the moment, I am struggling to see that changing any time soon.
