The Gothamist will not feel sorry for ourselves just because it's raining... again.

Because we know that it’s relative.

Consider the following examples.

Noah’s Ark: Poor Noah had 40 days and 40 nights of this stuff.

According to the Rover, it’s much worse on Mars.

In 1983 New Yorkers were forced to stomp through 80 inches of rain in one year (see graph for proof). We’ve had only 9.98 inches since January 1.

If this doesn’t make you feel better about all this gloomy weather think about all the dog pee that is being washed away this very second.
