RAIN!


Subdeacon Joe

Recommended Posts

Congrats on the rain, wish we would get some substantial rain.

 

Hard to believe but the Tampa Bay area is in a severe drought. I've been keeping track of the rainfall for many years, we're down 30"+ for the year as compared to previous years and the dry season is here. The last time it was like this there were large forest fires (not as destructive as California's fires) in June/July of the next year.

 

I hope that the rain that ya'll receive doesn't just run off into the ocean.

Yesterday, between 1600 and midnight, we got about 5/8" of rain.  So far today - almost 7/8 of an inch since midnight!  

Is this a "thank God it's finally raining" post, or is this a "oh no, we are going to get flooded out" post?

This is CALIFORNIA!  Of course it's a "Thank God we're finally getting some rain."

When I was new a truck driving, (1990), I had to make a couple deliveries in Kalifornia. It rained the entire three days in was in the state. And all I heard on the radio was complaining about the drought.:angry:

You aren't too far away from my daughter. She is in St. Pete.

ON the other side of the state from St. Pete, we got 13 inches of rain in less than 24 hours.  You read that correctly.  We're glad it finally stopped raining.  Several streets nearby had flooded.  The nearby town told everyone to stay off the roads unless it was an emergency because they were tired of getting rescue driver calls.  We needed rain too but not all at once.

So, between earthquakes, forest fires and floods, how much longer do you think California will last?

Nature we can adapt to and survive, it's the capons and wethers on office that are the problem.

Both.  We got a little rain, but can use a lot more.......BUT I dread the Arizona monsoons season which is right around the corner.

 

Thanks to AAA and my new roofs on both buildings I'll at least be dry indoors.

 

Remember that Noah was called a conspiracy theorist....until the rain started.

Was supposed to be wiped out in the 70’s as pastors prophesied Gods wrath and punishment on the sun state. Boy, to rewind wind the clock to those milder to

es…..It’s what brought my Pentecostal in-laws here to Georgia. They were convinced California was gonna be wiped off the map
