Sometimes we get that much rain and it's not that fun.
Fortunately, I can't clearly remember how many years ago that was.
Sometimes! Not my videos, but this was our town last year:

This guy drove through my neighborhood.

One more


YouTube - Rain drops keep falling on my head

In about 2 day's time it had all washed down to Texas and we were high and dry. I did get a little mold in my Garage last year, but we did have a hurricane after all. Oklahoma Climatological Survey

None of that would be considered "Normal"

Yes the rain was nice, but even with the temp down it's VERY sticky outside, check out that dew point 72!

yes, but at least it's not blistering hot, though 74 with 96% humidity does feel a bit muggy.

after 2 sunny days, it's back to the usual grey gloom. I checked the weatehr stats for this month and found out that Sydney has actually been far cloudier than us.

Incidentally, the highest temp today, 60F, occured at 3:18AM. It's supposed to be 65F today, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

on my way home from work a billboard said the temp was 94 degrees at 9:00 pm, it feels like a heater outside and lots of people are still at the pool.

No, I'm not sure how that happened. We have been talking about going to Lake Okoboji, but it's not far from here and I've done no research on it so I don't know what's happening with those poor people down there. We've been to Arnold's Park and I understand that's not even in the flooding. We didn't make any plans to go to Cedar Rapids and south. I think there's another jinx in this world and they are researching it for relocation.
