On Wednesday, Columbus and Toledo, Ohio, joined the growing list of U.S. cities whose wettest year on record is now 2011.

Columbus and Toledo started Wednesday on a wet note with 0.55 and 0.36 of an inch of rain, respectively, falling.

That amount of rain is typically not noteworthy, but in Wednesday's case it made 2011 each city's wettest year on record.

The yearly rainfall total for Columbus now stands at 53.55 inches, surpassing the previous wettest year of 1990 and its 53.16
Similar records have already been established in numerous other communities throughout the Midwest and Northeast.
According to AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Bill Deger, the growing list includes Binghamton, N.Y. (67.02 inches); Cleveland, Ohio (64.25 inches); Philadelphia, Pa. (62.37 inches); Wilkes Barre-Scranton, Pa. (59.14 inches); and Albany, N.Y. (52.48 inches).

1. We seem to be getting the "100-year-flood" every few years.

We've lived in our current home for 5 years, and the sewers have backed up 3 times. We finally had to install a $2500 ejector pit to try and stop the city's sewers from backing up into our basement. We're sick of seeing our neighbor's waste matter on our basement floor.

2. We've had more rain in December than in the previous 5 months

yet due to the super wet spring, we are about average.
This is in Iowa, where December + rain are two words seldom spoken together.

3. Not to be argumentative...

 

...But Kansas had drought (and so did most points south of Kansas) this summer.
