    Rain, rain, go away

    It's been raining the last three days.
    Can't really do anything outside.
    Reloading for the weekend done.
    PC some more boolets.
    Have an engine to change, and some heads to pull.
    Feel kind of bad for the tourist.
    Spend all that money, and get rained out.
    At least it's not snow or a flood.

    Its been raining here too. All of the farmers are behind because of it. It has hurt the yield on rice and is beginning to effect soybeans. Not to say anything about the extra fuel that it takes and the ruts that have to be repaired.

    For us it's more like "Rain, Rain, Come my Way". The drought here has been severe for the last several years, although we had some pretty decent rains in October. We really need the moisture.

    You poor Folks.

    RAIN, RAIN COME MY WAY. DROP an inch over 3 days and move on to our Brothers in Arizona.

    Then come back the next week, the same way, and the week after. Then give us a weeks break. And drop a 1/2 inch the next week. So so on for every month, From now on. And make that rain between midnight to 3am.
    And Snow, lots of snow in the Sierra's. Just not on the roads.

    Please, LORD, Give the Southwest a generous gentle Rainy season.
    Happiness is a Warm GUN & more ammo to shoot in it.

    Been raining here for three days, also. Interfering with my bow season...........rut is on. Passed on a nice buck, Thursday morning. Picked up the camera instead of the X-bow. Of course, I already had an 8 point in the freezer.

    Iím not going to complain to much. Itís been raining on the weekends. While this does effect my hunting. Iíd rather it rain on the weekend then during the week while Iím at work. I managed to dodge it yesterday. It was pouring on and off as I went from mountain mountain to mountain and valley to valley. No rain on the mountain I was working on. Finished up there, drove to my vacation home not far from the job. And itís been raining since I got here. Didnít bother to bring my hunting gear w/ me.

    I was in HI in mid September. It rained hard a couple days. I was one of the few people on the beach. Where i live, it would have been a 50% chance of snow. 75* and rain felt good.

    I'm ready to be done with the rain. Thankfully it was a pretty decent day as I taught a pistol class today at an outdoor range.

    It’s been raining here in Central NYS since the beginning of August. I think we have over doubled our average rainfall the last 3 months.

    Still raining, but not all the time.
    I live on the Windward side of the island.
    We get most of rain.
    On the other parts of the island, it's sunny most of the time.
    Rain is good. Everything is green and grows well.
    That's a problem too.
    Can't cut the grass when it rains.

    This year has been strange. Gun range is shut down, buddy said he saw pic on TV, water up to the roof of the shack. Phone call says they may be open next week. IIRC we're 18" over from last month. This winter is going to be strange too. Mud dobbers are out in force. Son was planning a trip to Hi but is now going to Whitefish. Wants to drive from Missoula - hope he takes snow shoes.
    Whatever!

    We had a cold winter (for us) then driest summer since 1976 .where I live we're normally twinned with Atlantis. So we'll probably get a wet cold winter this year as it tends to even out .

    The weatherman said this morning that we are 12.3 ahead for the year. I think his bucket has a slow leak My gage showed 5+" several times after heavy rain storms. I've never seen this before.
    Information not shared. is wasted.

    Weíre 16Ē over average for the entire year and thereís still a month and half to go. I know that number is higher. The figure is calculated from radar and not what actually fell. My rain gauge was over flowing more times then I can count. And itís supposed to rain here all weekend.
