I was starting to worry beginning of last week, but since Thursday we have gotten over 2", and they're calling for more later this week. Starting to get annoying as it's getting harder to find time to get all my accounts done already.

I'll do my best to send some down your guy's way!!!

We had it bad last year in East Texas. Some lakes were 8 to 9 feet below normal. We have been having some rain almost every day for the last week, and are about 6" above normal for this time of the year.

Yes. Dulles Airport had 0.24 inches of rain since May 1 as of Sunday noon. It did rain a little Sunday evening however, which brought the total up to 0.34 inches for the month. The normal should read 3.94 inches.

Reagan National is at 0.94.

BWI is at 1.75 for the month.

Here in Hotlanta, we are over 11 inches in down from where we should be, I saw on the evening news that Lake Okeechobee in Fl, is the worst ever. Pray for rain.
