As you trudged to your car holding your umbrella for what seemed like the 18th day in a row, praying that the wind wouldn't turn the flimsy protection inside out leaving you soaked for the commute home, you might have thought to yourself, "Hey, self, it's rained every freaking day in April. This has to be some sort of record. Screw this noise."

You were/will be right. According to NewsNet5, April 2011 currently sports the second highest rain total in Cleveland history. A few more drops, which will likely come later today, and this will officially be the suckiest April on record.

Here is a list of the top 10 wettest Aprils on record in Cleveland:

1) 6.61" in 1961
2) 6.58" in 2011
3) 6.07" in 1998
4) 5.90" in 1950
5) 5.78" in 1957
6) 5.57" in 2005
7) 5.38" in 1873
8) 5.36" in 1954
9) 5.26" in 1929
10.) 5.01" in 1920

This will conclude all weather-related updates for the day.
