Cynthia's question reminded me that I had also plotted some rainfall 
climate graphs of Central Texas, since I grew up in Austin, as well 
as a number plots of other locations in the world a couple of years 
ago. I uploaded all those plots to the wiki in the MISCELLANEOUS page 
However, these were for my own interest, so they haven't been 
proofread or edited.
