Wettest July in history here in my neck of the woods with plenty more rain on the way. Also, we're 7" ahead of the all time annual rainfall record...FML!

16" here in north Atlanta... I'm used to the rain now though. Looking back on the last couple of year, I'd much rather have rain than no rain

It has been pretty wet here in Eastern NC until recently. In my area no real measurable amount of rain in over 2 weeks. While 50 miles west they have been getting soaked.

Here in Fayetteville area, it has been about 2 weeks since we got the last real good bit of rain. There was some heavy rain on Wednesday, but it was very, very localized, and moved through very quickly. It's nice not to be in a drought.

i'm so sick of the rain. we've had more this year than any year in history in northeast alabama.

i'd rather it be dry. you still get to mow and you get done alot faster with less work. lol

i do hate the dust but i think i hate high humidity worse.

the only plus is it hasn't been so hot this year because of all the rain. the downside is high humidity which is worse than heat. we do get a nice cool day the day after it rains though which is very nice.

every year of my life the grass has always been brown this time of year and it only rained 1 time every 3-4 weeks. it's been raining 2-3 days every week here all summer.
