    I think we have it bad and than I hear from my sister and her house on Devils Lake in ND is slowly being eaten by the lake it is raising. However, that said I don't like the wind and rain and lightening scares me to death. :(

    Sitting here in Madison county Illinois and I think maybe all we are getting tonight is rain. It has been windy, hail and lots of lightening and thunder. St. louis got hit bad the other night. I hope this is all done when we head home.

    CA is back and forth with cold rainy storms and hot, i just want a season, pick one, I don't like freezing raining one day, and the next day 100 degrees, and I have put my baby in winter wear for summer weather, very annoying. If its gonna be cold, be cold, or if its gonna be hot, be hot make up your mind weather

    Come on over to my house. The last day we had rain was August 4, 2010. I kid you not.

    Big grass fire just north of the prison today. Burned 4 miles wide by 18 miles long. Caused lots of "tank batteries" to explode. A tank battery is a group of storage tanks that oil being pumped flows into. Yup, this is BIG oil country & nothing is safe from a grass fire. Could have been prevented if they had shut off the flow before the fire got there. So sad about all that crude oil up in smoke! The flowing oil continued to burn until the fire went past & they could get in there to shut it off.

    Only that section was dry. Everything else is sloppily wet. We can walk on the grass with out sinking in. We had a bad storm pop up this afternoon and it soaked us then it stopped raining but about midnight tonight we will get hit again. We have been averaging about 4 or more storms a day for the 4 days. 2 1/2 more to go then a break. YEA!!!

    My DH and I think of Devils Lake often. We were allowed to go on a mission trip to the rez there and worked on houses. We repaired 27 houses that week. It was such a blessing for us. Tell your sister she is in our prayers.

    I hear you loud and clear we finally got some rain not a whole lot today and it was a nice slow gentle soak in kind which we really needed. I am so thankful for the rain, I do understand about the storms etc been in those shoes too. My prayers go out to all of those who have suffered, lost homes etc during the storms. Patti Sue

    The news said the storms would be here tommorrow. I'll have to wait out the tornado warnings in my husbands shop, its in the underground side of our walkout basement/garage. The problem is my sewing room is up stairs!

    I agree... I am soooo tired of being shaken by the thunder during the night.

    It actually ran over our driveway today and washed gravel down our riprap...which wouldn't be too bad but our riprap hill is over 3 feet high. The culvert looked like a firehose, it's 24" wide and couldn't go any faster...that is why the water rose and ended up over our road.

    Come on sunshine!

    We have had over 8 inches of rain since Thursday. I feel so blessed and lucky that the worst of the rain and weather has stayed to the south and east of us. I volunteer at our local food bank and it was quite the challenge to load the trailers and trucks while it was pouring down rain. We do have an awning that helps but then the lightning started. We had to have people back into the warehouse because the forklifts couldn't get traction outside on the asphalt and then the lightning complicated things. The last people we loaded came prepared with tarps and nets but heard that the road they needed to travel had been closed due to high water. I wonder how Noah felt?

    My daughter also has a home on Devils Lake and they have lost about 50 feet of shoreline. The lake has risen about 3 feet in the past 3 years. The lake size has increased from about 10,000 acres to over 100,000 acres. Many families have lost their entire farms and homes. It is such a disaster. Luckily, our daughter's home is still high enough. But, the town of Devils Lake is surrounded by a dike that must be over 20 feet high, and if it ever gives out, no one in that town has a chance. Still no one thinks that there needs to be an outlet to release some of that water. A disaster just waiting to happen. Thanks for letting me vent.

    I am south of you CJ and this is what I woke up to Wednesday, from Tuesdays storms.
    A short 11 months ago we had to deal with this same problem on the other side of the house. That time took out our power and a good chunck of roof. This wasn't as bad, but a Much bigger tree.

    Got sooo lucky, the 3 trunks split and went around the garage.

    I was so excited today as it was our second full day in a row of total sunshine.
    We've been it seems like weeks of 3 or more days rain, storms, totally overcast, dreary, followed by one tease day of sun, followed by yet more of the gloom.

    And we're due, yet again tomorrow, at least 2 more days in a row of rain. Sigh.

    Discouraging. :cry:
    And then I read all your stories.......how blessed I am just to be a bit wet and grumpy.:oops:
