CHICAGO (AP) --
Chicago is making some soggy history.
Weather Service says more rain -- 12.411 inches -- has fallen in the city
since May 1 than has ever fallen during the same period since records
started being kept in 1871.
Sun-Times also reports that the National Weather Service determined that May
was the wettest on record.
Anybody who’s seen
their kids’ baseball games called off or their picnics scrapped knows that
June has been a wet month as well. Through Wednesday, the city recorded 4.2
inches of rain for the month. And the rain continued to fall on Thursday and
is expected to keep falling on Friday.
