Cornwall's flood misery tips the UK into the second wettest year on record.
The final set of statistics for the winter from the Met Office reveal 2012 fell short of 2000 by 6.6mm.
Up till the end of September, Camborne was battered by almost 80cm of rain, but that was before the wettest winter months.
During an average year the town can expect more than a metre's worth.
Diana Mullis from Lostwithiel knows what it's like to find your home under water. She said: "The emotional legacy is a hidden villain you can't do anything about. It's the memory of what happened before, it's just 'please, please don't let this happen to me again' and there's just nothing you can do about that."
She says many in the flood hit Cornish town had to decide whether to press on with plans to visit loved ones over Christmas: "If you do go and something happens you're going to feel you should never have left home. If you don't go and nothing happens then you're going to think, 'Oh, I could have gone.' It's horrible but, at the end of it all, your home and your own wellbeing is your priority."4:09pm 3rd January 2013
