    ...so we are going on 16 consecutive days of rain. Not sprinkling, misting, or drizzling but heavy down pours about every 2-3 hours. Not letting up either for at least 2 more days. Located in SW OKC. It's the same d@mn storm circulating around the state. There are two larger systems east and west of the state that are keeping the storm from moving out. I have never been this stressed out or overwhelmed.

    same problem over here, got an inch the other night, has rained everyday. but at least we get some breaks between the rain, otherwise we could not mow at all.

    Same thing here in Muskogee. Just about anywhere I walk in the yard at home leaves ruts . I never noticed it raining at all yesterday - something different.

    I saw a LCO mowing his own yard yesterday. He wasn't using his Toro ZRT but was using a walkbehind. It looked like the old dirt roads in the movies when a model T had gone through the mudholes.

    Feel free to send all you can spare this way.

    We're at 40% of average rainfall for the year.


    Local lake is 15 feet below normal, so we can't even get boats in to fish.

    4th day here in KC. Anywhere from 10 inches to 35 inches within a 100 mile radius here. They say today is the last day though and then back into the high 80s next week. Grass should be shooting up like wildfire next week.

    Hey, you wanna send some of that our way? We've only been about two weeks without any kind of steady rain but youd be amazed at how fast things start to dry up. . .
