April totalsI began tracking in May, 2013, after the 2012 drought. In 2014, we had flooding, as well. Late snow on the crocus. This year we've had a goodly amount.
April 2017 in Ottawa was warmer and wetter than normal, but we did have a lot less snow than normal. @BlacksWeather #ottweather pic.twitter.com/Dej3dtG8N7— James Wilson (@wilsonjamesb) May 1, 2017

#MyParamedicDay was spent touching base with those affected by the flood. Sand bagging, like snow shoveling makes me nervous..#CardiacHealth pic.twitter.com/6Se5EhiO7x— Matt Cruchet (@Paramedic_Matt) April 22, 2017

There were winds, and the resulting power outages. There is flooding across low-lying areas, too.
A months worth of rain coming in the next 2 days. With already saturated ground, some flooding is likely. pic.twitter.com/38PDW9BxiU— Anthony Farnell (@AnthonyFarnell) April 5, 2017
April 4th – AND, RAIN! We had 28.7 mm (~1+")
April 3rd – something's on its way!
April 1stA bit of an April Fool's Day joke!
Eventually it all turned to snow fall, after a time. I measured the snow, but since so much melted, I used the rain gauge and we had 14mm of precipitation fall, over about 6 cm snow.
