     Here in Phoenix we've had the warmest year on record, and we had just 
under 5" of rain for the year.  Also, I'm now fully aware that our average 
annual rainfall, calculated on a 30-year sliding average, is steadily 
decreasing.  A few years ago it was 8.42", but now it's 7.97".  I'm trying to 
get long-term weather data so I can determine if this decline is periodic or 
single as we have been told for many years that this part of the world will be 
the first to experience serious effects from global climate change.
