Total Precipitation 2011

Here are some interesting maps that depict the amount of precipitation that fell across the contiguous United States during 2011. The top map shows the total precipitation that fell. The bottom map shows what the normal yearly precipitation should be.
Locally, I measured 54.23 inches of precipitation at my station from January 1 through December 31, 2011. The official measuring site for Cincinnati, Ohio (which is across the river in Covington, Kentucky) was 73.28 inches. That was a record amount for the city. Records date back to 1872.
