In the past 2 and a half weeks we have been "blessed" with well over 15 inches of rain. Just in the past week or so we have gotten over 6 inches and we are still getting more! I am about to be blasted with YET another storm. Rivers are closed roads are flooded houses near river are flooded, boats are getting swept away docks are under water! when will this all end! This is putting a big damper on the end of a great season!

If you look at it the midwest states across from Iowa through OH there is a stalled weather system trapping all this stormy humid crud on us, and leaving the hot and dry down stuck on you southerners.

I would trade, If not for it being time to go to school, i'd hop in the car and go back to the lake.

We're getting a fair share of rain here, but I'll gladly take it. I was really getting tired of dragging a hose around my yard. We hardly got any rain in July.

Ya, which meant all the lakefront property owners were fertilizing and watering their lawns which flushes all sorts of chemicals into the lakes and causes the algae and seaweed to take off.

Shakes fist!

Wet here in Central IL, not as wet us up north, but I just got a couple of ski runs in, then dinner, then as I was unloading the truck at home, it downpoured. Like Sue said, really dry in July/early Aug. then really wet the last week or so.
