    Well it's probley raining more because the ice caps are melting and so there is more moisture in the air from the sun doing evaporation, then the cloud could of got blown over to the uk and it rains river water and the added ice cap water and that's why I think it's been raining more!!!!

    I was hoping we'd have a sunny year without alot of rain, but instead, it's the wettest year there's been for 100 years!

    maybe the water cycle decided to work faster over the past couple years?!?!?!

    I think that it has something to do with global warming, like ReiverDiva. Anyway, I hope 2013 will be sunnier than 2012!!!
