    I am praying and praying that God would send this rain somewhere where it is needed. Another 1 inch!!! I mop the basement, set up siphons to get the water off the back porch. Walking in the yard is like walking on a sponge. One good thing is that I can stay at home and babysit this but it is really getting old. . . .

    We've had Irene, Tropical depression Lee and now this no-name system that is driving us crazy! Crazy like in the winter when we don't get sun! I got an email today form my sister in Kansas and she said her husband was drilling in grains and it is so dry.

    One of us is not praying the right way!!!

    Send it here to SW Kansas. They say we haven't been this dry since the 30's. It is awful.

    another texan here praying for rain. seems funny to me they can build an oil pipeline from alaska to here so why can't they build a water pipeline from flooded areas to dry texas and other dry states. did you hear that we had a 6-inch rain last week - that is - 6 drops 6 inches apart. i could have spit that much.

    Oh, how we could use some rain. We are still facing fires daily and they predict it to get worse.

    We had a long, hot summer but rainfall is a little above normal. So far has not caused any problems here. Hope your situation eases soon!

    Know what you mean. We have only had two days with sun for the month of Sept. Really tired of it. Can't seem to catch a break. Friends are trying to get basements fixed from the quake and the rain just won't let up.

    I don't think we've ever had this much rain in a 3 month period. Would love to send it down to Texas.

    Sure would love to send a few - perhaps more than a few - rain clouds to you in the west who need water. We've had more than enough!

    3 days ago we were 10 inches above normal for 2011 and its still raining and forecast says 70 to 90% chance til the last minute of Sept. I guess its better than shoveling but personally they are both :thumbdown: :thumbdown: with me :cry:

    It finally rained here last night and on and off today but all it did was make it very humid, sticky and muggy. No relief other than the plants got some water.
