So just how much did it rain this past summer? A friend who has been down here for more than twenty years, has been personally tracking rainfall over the same period of time. Here are his numbers:
2008: 178 cm. (70 inches)
2009: 122 cm. (48 inches)
2010: 231 cm. (91 inches) – To date, but probably little or no rain for the remainder of the year.
In September alone there was 104 cm. (41 inches) of rain! These rains have caused significant damage, taking out bridges, washing out roads and in some cases, completely changing the beach landscapes, especially to the north in Nayarit.
