OK, I've had just about enough of spring rains already..!!  Every day for a week or so gets real old, real fast.  The grass and weeds make the yard look like a jungle (my lawn service is due to show up any day now).

I can't paint, even in my basement, because the lacquers blush..!!  70 to 90% humidity just makes everything feel "sticky".  I feel for all of you guys in Florida and other areas who experience this all the time.

Uhhh. I hate the R-word more than the S-word. Snow is usually expected, but rain... that sh*t just shows up ruin your mood.

I would have loved it if I had gotten my garden in before this mess. As it is, I'll be lucky if it dries out enough to plant by June.

Harry, wanna bet?! I had to. We have a dry well that does not work. One day the landing flooded into the basement. I was shoveling rain!

:lol: 

 

Ok, that's a special case.

 

My house is the highest one on the block... all water runs away from my house in all four directions. I have two sump pumps in the basement; I don't think either of them has ever even gone off in the 25 years I've lived in this house, no matter how hard it has rained, or for how long. The advantage of having a lot at the high point of the whole subdivision!

Florida isn't that bad.  We had 1/2" of rain yesterday and today 1 of my gardenia plants started to bloom.  Very pretty.  When it gets too humid, we just jump in the pool.

I don't mind the rain, as long as the sump pumps keep going......

 

downside is, rain, some heat and sun and my lawn seems to grow a foot a day! in good situations this time of year I have to mow every 3 days, and I am in a 'weird' spot ground water wise [part of the old erie canal is across the road from my house, Oneida lake 3 miles down the road], so if we get too much rain, my yard is 'land -o- lakes' with foot tall grass, gets out of control fast.

 

so here is hoping for some somewhat dry weather after the massive rain we are supposed to get tomorrow.............

Lows will be in the 30's the next few days, a little cooler and the R word could become the S word.

We are working on 3+ inches of rain for today.  Possible tornado hit about a mile up the road.  Great day to be off from work...NOT

You can keep that, Craig. I've had enough cold for the next 6 months!
