That Time it Rained for Two Million Years
Carnian Pluvial episode 232-234 mya
Wrangellian Eruptions - 5 million years of volcanoes (raised temperatures 3-10'F) led to 2 million years of increased rainfall, cf. Pacific Northwest. This led to annual flooding and a huge expansion of conifers and other trees. Dinosaurs were well equipped to eat tall plants (teeth, stones in stomachs), and went from 5% of fossil record to 90%.

HON: Evidence of dry period can be seen in swaths of red sandstone in sediment layer, followed by rocks (from flooding)
