No idea why you would mind about getting below average rainfall. Fair enough if you were suffering drought conditions but I think most people in the Uk would be delighted with less rain
To me, it's all just part and parcel of wanting to report something more interesting out there to this forum's wider audience which could well be anywhere on this entire planet.
Because of that, what I report is what I would see as being more interesting to the wider audience out there, and not necessarily what I am actually wanting in terms of our actual weather. As an example of that, I would like to see good weather all the time for going out and about and yes, an important part of that is that it should be dry so for those purposes alone, that is fair enough.
In the context of trying to keep everything more interesting on this forum though, that just gets a bit boring after all especially when it comes to the point we're now just about taking those conditions for granted, and I believe that the wider audience out there would actually rather see more interesting things happening with our weather, which is a lot more varied.
It's the same when it comes to our rainfall patterns as well, which is really just a part of that and so, it just gets boring after all if it's drier than average all the time as has been the case throughout most of this year.
However, we are not in an actual drought here and so, I'm not actually seeing the overall situation as being critical in any way in that regard as I would be if that was the case. However, there is a reason why we have long-term averages for aspects of our weather such as temperature and rainfall so when we stray too far away from those averages for too long, that can become increasingly concerning in my books.
For a number of years, this has already been quite a major story when it comes to our temperatures (after all, we wouldn't have anything like the same amount of controversy which is around when it comes to the subject of climate change if that wasn't the case), and I just wouldn't like to see the same things happening with our rainfall patterns as well.
