Rain, Rain, Stay Today!

...And Come Again EVERYDAY!


We had a couple of nice rain showers this week. It only totalled about 1/3 of an inch but HEY! we'll take it. That just means we're only NEGATIVE 19.66 inches in our annual rainfall totals. As you can tell from this picture, it wasn't even a heavy rain...the sun is still shining.

I know it's hot up in the North and Northeast but HELLS BELLS!! We have been dealing with triple-digit heat and a triple-digit heat index since May and we've had NO measureable rainfall since last October. We have a 20-inch rain deficit. You've had heat for only a week and rain all year. Go buy a fan and chill! That's what we're doing. It will eventually pass. In the meantime, sweat with the rest of us. And then go take a shower cuz you're startin' to smell funky. :P
