Hydrologic "horseshoes"

South Florida records its first "official" Big Rain Day (BRD) of the year,

But the bigger story has been the preceding (and many) almosts.

The calendar chart above shows the seasonal distribution of south Florida's Big Rain Days (BRDs) from 1992 to present.  Mitch (Nov 1998), Fay (Aug 2008) and Isaac (Aug 2011) rank among south Florida's biggest Big Rain Days. Last year we got two,yesterday was this year's first.

Unlike the Heat's opening game loss to the Spurs,

Cumulative rainfall is like horseshoes in that almosts count.
