Well, 2012 has been the wettest on record.

So what do you think? Is this a blip? Records get broken.
Or is this a sign of a trend? Should we expect more wet years to come? Not necessarily next year, but do you think the record will be broken again in a couple of years?

Is your house in danger of flooding? Have you taken measures to reduce the damage / risk?

It really has been a remarkably wet year, but of course we're not going to know if it's a blip (or not) except by taking the long view, which means comparing this year with the next, and then the next, and the next, and the next, and the next, and the next ... hence the old saying about weather being what you can see by sticking your head out of the door right now, but climate being something that you can only judge by carefully collated records over decades if not centuries. Personally I actually like rain, but even I have to admit that such a relentlessly wet and comparatively mild Christmas, with day after day after day of rain, is a miserable and dirty affair - I'd have much preferred it if it had been cold and frosty enough to make the ground set rock hard: the fields around here are all like the last day of the Somme.

That said, I think people sometimes forget that the coldest months of winter are traditionally January and February (snow in the latter isn't that uncommon). It's quite possible that we could be in for a really good cold snap yet.

Even snow in April is not unknown.  I hope the weather turns really cold soon because I have a gorgeous new hat I want to wear.

Re the rain, if our home was under water we would be having a flood of Biblical proportions.  My heart goes out to those who live in constant dread over all of that.   I do hope that next year we have a little bit more sunshine - this year's garden was all to pot because of the wet.

Is this the "Looks like hot for Easter" thread?
