Summer just basically vanished sometime back in August. I kinda had a feeling that might happen though.

48.4 mm in Surrey? Sounds suspiciously high. Where do they even measure rain in Surrey?

I had 25 mm as of 8 am this morning. I'm at about 30 mm by now.

I don't know where it is, but as you know, Surrey is a very large municipality.
In the northernmost part of the city, close to Coquitlam or Pitt Meadows, it's possible.

Yeah, I used to live there. They never used to report rainfall totals in that area. I think we can agree the number is useless without knowing where in Surrey it was measured.
