And go to someplace like the desert Southwest where you would be much more appreciated! Haven't been able to keep any of my weekend plans due to the wet stuff. Officlaiiy for here ( S.E. PA ) May was the most sunless month that we've had in a long while. My back yard is like a sponge. I went out to put up my hammock ( optomistic me! ) and sunk down nearly three inches where my hammock patch is. How about where you're living?

Can't fish, streams are too high and fast. Can't Orienteer, too slippery in the woods. Can't go camping, too wet.

Yeah, the humid stuff is coming. Oh goody for that, too! Can't do anything else, may as well not be able to breathe either!

...the rivers are swollen in the land of flowers...but it's lush and verdant...nothing like the year smoke choked the skys and ash covered everything at the Florida Folk Festival...

...we went out to Cedar Key to go crabbing on the promise of the Weather Channel that it would be fair...what a crock! It rained all weekend and we had to hole up in "Number seven, Mermaid's Landing, Cedar Key"...stay tuned for the song...harpgirl

Three whole days w/out rain!? I can't imagine what that would be like!!

I'm in NE PA and we're about ready to float away. We've gone from a cold snowy winter to a cold rainy spring - now what, a hot humid summer? Of course, what was I expecting!? It's not like I haven't lived here all my life - LOL!

Today was not beautiful... but tomorrow's supposed to be. Of course I have to work - so what else is new??

Ah...we had rain here in Pocatello, ID the day before yesterday; maybe a tenth of an inch maximum. First rain in abour 5 weeks. We're in the fourth year of a drought, and if you folks want your McDonald's french fries and your Wendy's baked potatoes, you better hope that this drought ends soon.

Anyway, mothers took their children outside during the rain so that the kids would know what it was and wouldn't be frightened by stuff falling from the sky.

Too bad we in the east can't send some of our rain out to Arizona where those fires are burning.

Our blueberries are fat and juicy from all the rain. Unfortunately, their flavor is a bit watered-down, also from all the rain. Maybe it'll improve if we get a few dry days. Can't complain too much though, 'cause anything's better than last year when all the blossoms froze in March and we got nothing at all.

WOuld love some of that rain out here in western colorado, though we have had a few days off and on; lots better than last year.

They have had weeks of non-stop rain on Cape Cod; not good for their biggest revenue-maker: summer tourism.

Walking Eagle, thank you for your kind offer, and we will gladly accept it if you can figure out a way to get the rain to us. An article in the paper yesterday said that the Southwest may be in the first years of a Megadrought, similar to the one that wiped out the Anastazi in the 14th century. We've had a few showers here in central New Mexico, but no significant rain since late last summer.

And, if there's any left after you forward some rain to others who have put in a word, we could use some precipitation in France, too. Definitely a weird year.

cheers,

Aux

You could always do the traditional rain dance....

11 men dress in white and go stand in the middle of a field. Another 11 men wait on the side. The first 11 spread themselves about the field in a loose circle. One man from the second 11 takes the ceremonial carved piece of holy willow, walks to the middle of the field and stands a little in front of the sacred standing sticks, arranged in a line of three with two smaller sticks across the tops. He strikes the ground gently three times, one of the first 11 runs towards him, making the traditional 'windmill' gestures, summoning the clouds, he releases the sacred red orb which bounces off the surface of the field, towards the one man from the second 11. He strikes this orb with the carved holy willow and it makes a noise like a crack of thunder. This is the signal for the rain to start falling.

We call it cricket.

How to get the water to the Southwest? Anyone who has studied electrical transmission already knows the answer. Send it through the transcontinental gas pipeline in a noninterfering frequency in the opposite direction to the gas. Be prepared for loud complaints from the other end of the pipe because the Texans were not prepared to deal with sucking as well as blowing.

I'd love to have been able to send rain to the west and southwest this weekend. It was the WETTEST Clearwater Festival I have ever seen, and I've been doing it for 16 years. By the end of Saturday, I was completely soaked, the inside of my raincoat was wet, and I was mud up to my hip, from falling down. (But I didn't drop my dinner!) Volunteers left in droves and the audience stayed away in similar numbers... and we had fantastic storytellers! I hate to complain, but couldn't today's sun have come yesterday?

Hot sunny day here today. No humidity,but it is coming.

Reading Ebarnecal's response put dme in the mind of how Buffalo did away with all of their snow during that very bad winter about 20 years ago. Rumor, or legend, or truth had it that the city ran out of places to dump their snow, so they loaded it in open gons in Conrail's yard and paid to have it shipped south!
