  3. That weather system was here for a week! It'd screw up an entire day for a tenth of an inch of rain. I worked wet for a week. You're welcome to the rain but don't expect much.

    Yep, we had the same conditions here last week. I was wearing sweatshirts and turtle necks pretty much all week and I forgot the rain suit was on as well. :waving: This week I saw is going to be much better.

    it is awful down here, sunny for 10 mins, then pouring rain. i was in the garden center at home depot today and it started hailing on us (large hail too), i waited inside homedepot for 20 mins, for the hail to slow down.

    We've had almost 3 weeks of rain - cold and windy to boot. I'm plenty sick and tired of working in full rain gear. Then it takes a hot shower and 3 hours with the electric blanket on high to get warm again. Not expecting to see the sun until Wednesday. Expecting SNOW tonight. Unbelievable!!!

    I ate dust that my mower was kicking up today...it stuck to the gallons of sweat that was pouring off my heat exhausted body and then baked to a hardened finish by the good 'ol Oklahoma sun! I'll take your rain and 48 degree temp for trade any day!

    It almost didn't rain here today. Tommorrow looks to be absoluetly beautiful (well, partly cloudy and a high of almost 60) Thats about perfect for me. That makes almost two weeks with rain everday here.
