Not much you can do, but be thankful it isn't a drought at least not right now.
We'll be getting this rain later tonight and tomorrow.

The National Weather Service has got us under a wind advisory today, though. Should make for fun times blowing the grass.

That storm system that's currently leaving the Cincy area is a good one. Stretches from Louisiana up into Canada. Lots of fellas are going to be getting the day off today.

Trust Me it pushed thru here by midnight. The amount of water running in the streets was amazing. I bet we got three or more inches in four hours. Shopping time for a new backpack!

There's one minor thing you need to go check out 7 properties.....THE ADDRESSES.

Called the guy at 8:30 this morning...left a message. Haven't heard back. Ok, then. Onto the booze.

everytime it rains for an extended period of time here, our raw sewage overflows and gets dumped into the withlacoochee river. something our city really needs to put a few million into pretty quick.

if you come down here, dont swim in the withlacoochee river. it has already gotten about 100 million gallons of raw sewage in it.

I was close to having a record week, but I learned never to curse the rain, we can cut tall grass but we screwed if it doesnt rain.

Never. Cuss. Rain.
It tends to shut off when it gets hot, and never comes back again
