It's raining dear Lord it's raining. Mon, 06/26/06 9:01 PM (permalink)
Here in central NC we're about a foot behind normal on rainfall. Raining so soft...so gentle...like an answer to a prayer. Rain all night long.

    Good luck with the rain. A few weeks ago we were wishing for the same thing.

        It rained here in SW GA all day yesterday until this morning. I had every bucket, garbage can, pot, pan, and two 55 gallon drums at the down spouts.
        This is the first day in three weeks I have not had to haul water!

        Thanks Earth Mother,

          If 1/3 of the rain we had in June was sent to V960 and another 1/3 to Ft Peck Lake, a lot of people would be happier. Too bad that Star Trek transporter thing is not real. Early this spring, we were way behind normal on rain and now we are way ahead. That is why we build dams. (or at least used to build damns)

              I'm not sure we've had 22" of rain this millenium...

                And everything East of me is floating after this past week. The most rain ever for the region w/o a tropical storm being involved. I did see that IRS is going to be closed for 30 days or so Well at least the DC main office...

                    Say a few prayers for the people in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey who live adjacent to the Delaware River. The flooding has been extensive, and has led to many deaths, as well as the destruction of many homes and property. My heart goes out to the victims and their families.

                    In addition, the flood is causing unexpected complications. As an example, NJ's Governor and Legislature were not in agreement on the budget for the '07 Fiscal Year. They were supposed to work intensively on some compromises from Wednesday through Friday of this week, in order to avert a shutdown of state services at midnight on Friday. The evacuation of large portions of Trenton, including the State House, has made that deadline very ominous and perhaps impossible to meet.

                    If the budget deadline is not met, most "non-essential" state workers will be sent home until there is a budget in place. Only the State Police, Child Welfare workers, and a few other job categories are considered to be "essential" during the budgetary crisis period.

                    I understand that the beaches will remain open,with lifeguards, but the Atlantic City Casinos will shut down, as a result of not having state employees to oversee security and other concerns. Which other leisure activities will be affected is unclear at the moment, but if you were planning on coming to NJ for the July 4th holiday, I would suggest checking the news media for details prior to departure.

                    We needed rain--but not this much!

                      Here in Las Cruces New Mexico, it has rained on and off yesterday and today. It's the first time we have had traceable rainfall since October 5th, 2005, or translated, about 9 months. I like that. After living 38 years in New Jersey, I don't care if I ever see rain again. Unfortunately, pretty soon I won't be able to take a shower.

                        In the Albany, NY area we are about 6 or 7 inches inches of rain above average for the year so far. I probably should not say it but it has not rained so far today.

                            Glad to hear NM got rain. I know it's been a bad year, at least in northern NM due to little snow this winter. Fears of fire fires of course.
                            I come from the rainy East Coast butlived in NM for a while - I could never get used to everyone cheering when it rained or snowed. I wish we could just blow some of that rain across the Rockies!
