Congratulations, summer of 2011. Despite having a June and July that were drier than usual, your August was epically rainy. And so, when all was said and done, you beat out the summer of 1975 by a whopping three inches to become the rainiest summer ever, with more than 25 inches of rain. Go ahead, celebrate today with more rain, thunderstorms, and possible flooding. You've earned it. [WSJ]
