Default Flooding

What's with Wisconsin and Illinois this year? First snow, now rain.

We've pretty much been under constant flash-flood warnings for the last 2.5 days. Lots of roads closed because they are flooded over, and basements filled with water. My indoor high-school grad ceremony was postponed because our facility had a lead and had half an inch of water in it...

So how's the weather fairing by you guys?

summers always raining season


its been quite here though.

Florida's hurricane season started last week, and the tropics have also been quite, which is good for me and Ghost

but, the water park has been nothing but sunny skies, which wants me to go get a skin cancer test.

....and im serious

Well here in Kansas the weather is crazy like always. We've had some golf/softball sized hail. There was a pretty bad one a couple of days ago where all cars outside were dented. Car dealerships were giving 2grand discounts on most cars.

I remember at least two, but with all the warnings we had, i wouldn't doubt a third.

Just hot and dry, yet humid here. Getting up near 100F. Hasn't rained much lately. Constantly on burn bans. I mowed the lawn last week in the morning when it wasn't as hot, but I started sweating in no time because of the humidity...
