What Was Your 2018 Final Precipitation Number?

Now that they've summed it all up, what was your 2018 Total Precipitation?

I knew my town was going to be very high, but I was really surprised to find out that it was 82.10 inches - getting pretty near doubling the normal 44 inch average, which is no slouch even normally.

60.8 inches at the WeatherUnderground station down the street from me. Most cities/towns around hear broke all-time annual records, typically 60 +/- 5 inches.

NWS says the annual average is 38.4

Closest weather underground to me shows 9.99 inches for 2018. Two months had 0. 6 more months had less than an inch.

Pretty sure it was 60-something inches. 4th or 5th wettest year on record, I believe. Normal/average is 46-52 inches per year here. Still had some dry periods this past Summer with no useful rain for 2 and 3 week stretches. But from late September on, we've been hammered with rain most of the time. April and the first half of May was also a lot of rain.
