Rain

Looks like we're finally getting rain! I've been here 4 weeks yesterday and there's been no rain at all, not even showers since I moved here and I see lightening and hear thunder. Checked weather.com and here comes the rain! woohoo. As much as I like keeping my car clean it's so dry around here. I like the rain, except when it floods. Anybody else like rain?

Re: Rain

Shoot, it just turned into a severe thunderstorm warning with winds in excess of 60mph and the capability of producing nickle sized hail :shock:
Thank goodness I have covered parking

Re: Rain

Over here in Maryland, it hasn't rained in over two weeks. Finally, the last two nights it has downpoured for a few hours.

Rain is good to cleanse the air...to water the earth...to fuel our farms...to listen to from inside....

However, I do hate walking in the rain...seeing how dirty my MZ3 is after the rain...how it ruins any outside events....

Re: Rain

I find rain depressing...you can't do anything outside, and it is always humid when it rains. I find myself having less energy when it rains...not sure why.

But the Mid Atlantic definitely needs the rain...my grass has been pretty much dead for the past 3 weeks At least I don't have to cut it

Re: Rain

It's done nothing but fukin rain here for the past 3 weeks!! It rains about 2 or 3 times a day, usually with a rather severe thunderstorm at night. Goes from sunny to raining back to sunny back to raining....you get the idea. I can never wash my car. Looked at the extended forcast this morning, its not supposed to rain saturday, but then it will rain from Sunday through Friday ( Thats as far as the forcast went) I'm so goddamn fed up with rain right now I can't stand it!!!!! ARRRRGHHH
