Carroll Rinehart, out in Bel Air, remembers that May rainfall had threatened to top the all-time record for the month in Baltimore, and asks: "Did the last couple of days put us over the top?" Happily (or sadly for us weather geeks), no. The last day of May brought a final quarter-inch of rain. That pushed the month's total to 7.77 inches, cementing its standing as the second-wettest May on record here. But it was still an inch short of the 1989 record of 8.71 inches.
