Am I the only one that's about had enough of this rain? Heck, at one point tonight, I even made a half-hearted swipe towards us just up and leaving town for somewhere like, say, El Paso where we'd knew we'd be far enough away from this to not have to put up with it. We ultimately didn't go, but it may well be because it stopped raining more than any other reason. I honestly didn't even care if such meant we lost our jobs, I was just struck with an overwhelming feeling of "I've got to get the freak out of here."

That sounds crazy, but it's not half as crazy, to me, as how it's been around here. We've had more than 4 times the normal amount for this point in the month than we typically have, and a good 2 inches more than we'd typically have for ALL of the month--and there's more to come. That's what's really annoying--if it did that, only to then not rain anymore for the rest of month, since we're ahead of schedule, and to also be sunny 2/3rds of those days, then I could tolerate it. This is just insane. I swear Beavis & Butthead could do a better job of directing the weather than whatever numb skulls in nature are doing this.

Everywhere you walk, it's slushy. Rivers aren't just "full," they're gorging, overflowing into the roads. It hasn't had more than about 4 sunny days total for the past month. If one more person says something about our "drought," I just might punch them. If we're in a "drought," then I'm on my period (I'm a male). There is NO WAY we need all of this, just no way.

I'm going stir crazy. If it were up to me, it wouldn't rain another drop until at least May, and the first person who complained about it I've had them put in a Medieval torture chamber for even just having the opinion and stating it that "we need more rain." BULL!!!!

It needs to be sunny for a stretch now, yes, all the way from now to May if you ask me, 6 whole weeks non-stop, no interruptions whatsoever. Whatever supposedly will dry up--SCREW IT. LET IT. If it needs this much rain to survive, we can just do without it.

Am I the only one that's about had enough of this? I know we have to have some rain, it can't be sunny every day, but come on already, this is beyond insane.

I agree, except for "whatever numb skulls in nature are doing this". But yes, yes, enough cloudy days "already". This is not supposed to be Seattle. But, I hate to break it to you, as a matter of fact, don't even look at the forecast for the next week, more of the same, I'm not very skilled at trying not to let things I can't change, from bothering me. That's not very healthy outlook I know, but it's hard not to complain. Someone once told me if you complain and can "do' something about it, then do, if you can't change something, then move on. Uhh, Okay. lol

The other thing which bothers me--it won't rain much at all during times you'd not mind it, like July and August, and heck it would probably do some good too. It certainly would be welcome, even by me, for the relief from the extreme heat. Yet it hardly rains then. Now, when we're supposed to be in the high 60s and low 70s, it's perpetually cloudy. It's beyond stupid. It's to the point that I'm now seriously considering moving for that reason alone, returning to the desert where I once lived. This is beyond ridiculous.

Just a nice reminder: not every late winter is this rainy even here in East Texas. For more information, please research the year 2011. Hang in there, it won't be like this forever.

Don't get me wrong - I'm grateful that our ponds and lakes and rivers are starting the year off great. But I am SICK TO DEATH OF GRAY SKIES.

My yard is like a giant wet sponge! It's so butt ugly outside that I don't even want to take a walk at the few times it's not raining or dripping. BLECH.

But...this too shall pass. At least I'm getting to wear cute warmer clothes and shoes for a little bit longer.

Enough already, it's not officially raining, but I got caught out in the falling "dew" looked around not cloud formation !! It felt like I was in one. Really it was/is heavy falling mist/drizzle. Looked at the 10 day forecast/guess, noooooooooo ! 3 0f the 10 days, maybe partly cloudy. I know, calm down, you would "die" for this in July/August

Oh joy, I just received my usual round of notifications flood warnings for the area. At this point, that news is boring.
