Have you noticed it hasnt rained in a few days? The downpours we cursed a few weeks ago are now a distant memory. So you're probably then wondering: How appropriate is it that April is water conservation month? Historically, April is the driest month in Florida, but that may change soon. Its only a matter of time when well be amending the moniker. It wont be nearly as tidy a title with press releases proclaiming "April/May are Water Conservation Months" just doesnt have the same ring to it.
Looking at the data from 2009, April registered 0.00 inches, May 0.15 inches. Now thats a spread huh? But wait, In 2008 May was actually drier (.58 in) than April (.84 in). So is Aprils designation just one of those arbitrary honorariums like National Bird Feeding Month (February) or National Candy Month (June)?
