I really wish it would stop raining! I live in Jacksonville and right now we are at 5.5 inches of rain in 3 days (thanks Beryl) and I wake up to seeing it raining STILL.:lipquiver

I guess the good news is that my house is spotless & my front yard is no longer under water as of today.

Yuck! Send some to Kansas. We're looking a little parched here.

We had about 3-inches a rain last week here in Michigan in a 24-hour period but it was needed because we've been on the dry side all Spring. We also had very little snow over the winter so everything is so dry and we have a wildfire out of control in the UP that has not been contained. We need more rain!

Yikes. That is scary as when it rains it really pours- then floods and rivers that need sandbagging. Hope it's all dry now, and that it comes in little spurts for the rest of the summer!

Well at least it's stopped! You won't have to water your lawn for awhile. ;)
We're trying to recover from a drought here in TX. One of the last times it rained, it poured about 7" down in 5 hours (the rain filled an empty coffee can I had sitting outside. CRAZY!). So when they say "Everything's bigger in Texas," that includes both droughts (one of the worst on record) and thunderstorms. At the same time. LOL!
So yeah, send that rain our way! We were supposed to get some a few days ago but it wasn't really anything. I guess you got it, huh?
