Holy rainfall, Batman!

I just emptied the rain gauge (from overflowing) for the third time in three weeks. That's 16 1/2" in the past three weeks, PLUS the times I emptied it because more rain was coming. I kinda lost count, but we must be over 20" in that time. Sorry, Texans. If I could send y'all a couple million acre-feet, I would. Don't think the Ram would haul that much.

Looks like we're finally on track for a normal rainfall year. Our normal average is 65"+. Plus, there's a thundershower grumblin' outside now.

I know that's more than you need, but be grateful for it anyway. Our lakes are way down and that's more rain than we've had all year...by a long shot. Last year at then end of June we had had over 23", and that was a drought year. To this point in July we've had 11" total here. Our big rain was in January with 5.05".

Not necessarily more than we need. We must be 4' below normal for the past decade. A friend of mine was looking at our rainfall. Our average is 65" per year. That's more than Seattle, WA! It's been a lot of years since we even got half that. I've not gotten cabin fever yet, so I can stand some more. South Georgia is getting some, too. That should hopefully bring down the price of peanut butter. Local veggies seem to be doing very well, too.

Tornado's are bad enough I don't want to contend with hurricanes and tornados.

Not likely to move to Florida but we would really appreciate ANY rain you could send to Texas

The tornado's aren't as bad here. The weather channel let's you know when a hurricane is on it's way. Everything is so green from the rain. Haven't had to water my lawn in weeks. More mod money.

I will definitely take a hurricane over a tornado. Three days warning vs. five minutes!
