Default Glad it's raining again.

Now, for the 10 millionth weekend, it has rained the whole time. But it is supposed to be fantastic outside when I'm working this week. Rock on!!!

Sounds about right. Sun is out here now, but everything is still wet. At least when I'm working all week, it will be awesome outside.

In addition to all the rain we've gotten here in PA, as an added bonus, it's rained every Friday from the past three months

And it poured all day too

We've been stuck in the same pattern here, too. Nice weather during the week to drive the vette, but the weekends are completely borked for any car events/cruise-ins.

It could be worse...at least I'm not in Seattle

Last year Louisville Kentucky was way past Seattle with rain. I am just north of Louisville. A couple days ago Louisville was .09 behind last year's pace.

Same here in SW Indiana. We lost power to half the plant this morning, a raccoon decided to commit suicide by touching a 15KV feed. While inspecting the feeder line we had to walk thru a field sinking up to our ankles in the soft ground. The power engineer was trying to convince me to drive the truck thru it. Ain't happening I told her, then she admitted last year she got stuck out there.
Enough rain already.
Here it is supposed to be summer hot on Thursday, first day of a possible work stoppage with contract negotiations. UGH, nothing like a hot day with trying to keep the plant running.
