    It has been almost 30 days since it rained. We are used to getting rain atleast once a week. Is anybody else getting this much needed rain?

    We haven't had rain since April or May, I forget. Just all that boring sun all the time.

    We finally got a small shower today. We haven't had any rain for ever. It's a regular dust bowl here. We need more more more. Any one know a rain dance? :-D

    I actually like thunder/lightening storms if I don't have to drive at night in them. And I get tired of watering the veggies. It seems out here that they dry up in an hour or two when it is 90+ degrees. The ground is like a rock, too. The plus is that we can plan outdoor activities all summer and not have to worry about getting rained out or moving the bbq into the garage. So good and bad, as everywhere, I suppose - no perfect place.

    I just listened to some farmers today complaining that it is so wet here. They are hoping it dries out more so they can harvest the corn and beans and not have to pay to dry them out. Saves them money and better for the corn and beans. Less mold etc.

    All we received was enough to keep the dust down for a day or two. More, please.

    It's raining here too :D
    After almost 10 years in drought our water storage dams are up to 79% of capacity up from around 35% last summer.
    It has been sooo long since I have seen everything so green, I'm loving it :thumbup:

    We have had a lot of rain the past week. All the dams are overflowing. It's wonderful to see everything so green and fresh.

    We had a couple of nice sprinklings yesterday. The 1st was long enough to be very nice! The 2nd was short and light though. 60% chance for more today and I sure hope we get it!

    At least now I won't have to water the flower gardens and can concentrate on getting ready for a yard sale for Fri/Sat.

    We were all thrilled yesterday with a wonderful rain--probably 1/2 to 3/4" in 2-3 hours. ahhhh. we have had big forest fires and grass fires nearly every day around here, so it was recieved with much gratitude! :lol: :lol:

    Here in Lexington I think it must have rained a little overnight, but everything looked dry at 7:00 AM. And it is sunny now. Even when it rains it seems to miss our part of town. In my perfect world, it would rain at night and be sunny during the day, and temperature in the 70's year round. Don't ask for much do I?

    That is good news for you! I remember seeing all the wildfires on the news a while back - very scary.

    You've got the most beautiful birds there! We don't have anything close to being that pretty here.

    We were suppose to get less than a half an inch but it poured for almost an hour yesterday evening. Got up this morning and it is sunny and everything looks so nice and fresh. We are suppose to get more tonight, like a 50% chance, I hope so.

    Raining here in Virginia....welcome rain! The edge leaves on the roadside trees have been turning an ugly brown as it has been so dry. Wonder if there will be color at all later?
