When it gets like this we are talking needing serious rain, and if we have run off just as well to go into the lakes, reservoirs etc.
tropical storms usually bring a nice amount of rain to give the losing team a fighting chance,

I think a tropical system would be a big step in the right direction. Although there is no way it would bring us out, it would be a nice start. As for a hurricane.... I remember hugo! why go from the frying pan into the fire?
