There hasn't really been much mention of it in the media, but I'd say it must have. We have had constant rain for about 3-4 months along most of the east coast. There are floods scattered across parts of the three eastern states.

I feel sorry for all the farmers in the central west of the state (New South Wales). They have been in drought for years, they finally got some decent rain over Winter and had bumper crops, but now they look like being wrecked from too much rain.

Not to worry, America always has food to sell. Please don't mind the genetically-altered grain

Yeah... Silicon Valley used to be called The Valley Of Hearts Delight back when their were orchards blooming from foothills to foothills in the early spring.



Prunes, apricots and pears replaced wheat fields that went before and started a canning industry too.

So many acres of rich, well drained soil now under pavement and structures.
