We both can't count on them, but depend on them at the same time.
|Historical calendar chart|
of Big Rain Days (BRDs)
from 1991 to present.
Take for example last January's consecutive BRDs:
It rescued the swamp from a near certain spring drought.
|A Big Rain Day (BRD) is any day|
that all of south Florida averages
an inch or more of rain.
South Florida usually receives five BRDs per year.
This year (like last year) we are stuck on a subpar three.
So goes BRDs, so goes the swamp.
Here's to hoping we get a BRD soon!
