I've so been enjoying the rain the past 2 days. We've picked up 3.75". Woohoo! How much has everyone else picked up?

Dark and gloomy here too, and I am bored to tears, but so lucky to have 2.75 inches of rain, we really need it.

In Oklahoma we have a saying" that any storm that don't blow you away is a good storm" getting to the point of feeling that way about the rain any amount that don't flood you out is good..Let er rain nearly all of our farm ponds are drying out

I know we need the rain but it seems like it's been dark and gloomy for soooo long even if it's not raining.

You think this is gloomy? Try Boston. My daughter just moved from Arizona this summer to live in our house in Boston and says she is already depressed by the weather.

This weather is great!

3.50 inches of rain at my place in Glenn Heights (southern Dallas County). Like most of you, I'm ready for some sunshine, though. Let things dry out a bit and maybe get some more in a week or so.

Whats that ol Mortons salt shaker cliche? When it rains it pours. But the weather gives you all or nothing- and goes from ice and snow to scorch, get your suntan lotions ready guys.
