47 Inches of Rain

The total rain that I measured for the month of March in my backyard rain gauge was 47.04 inches (119.5 cm). That’s more rain than the 44.68 inches (113.5 cm) I measured for the entire year in 2005. Since I never posted that graph, here it is:

2005 Rainfall by Month (total 44.68 in.)
Location: Wailua Houselots (Makani Rd)

The number of sunny days in March could be counted on one hand. On the other hand, we had 4 days with 4 inches (10 cm) of rain, and 2 days with over 7 inches (almost 20 cm) in less than 8 hours. One of those times, the rain gauge overflowed, so the total could be low by an inch or two.
