March should have been a lot wetter in Billings. Instead, it was the 10th-driest March in 75 years of recordkeeping.
Just .42 inch of precipitation, mostly snow, fell on the city during the month. That's just 38 percent of the average 1.12 inches that usually hits the ground in March.
"To me, that's the story," said Keith Meier, meteorologist in charge at the National Weather Service office in Billings. "March is kind of the beginning of our wet season. That didn't happen last month."
I haven't been talking about how dry it is since it doesn't do any good but this is so true, March is normally a fairly wet month and it's been drier than hell lately and I don't see anything coming to change it. Damn. We sure could use some moisture.
