I don't recall this area having this much rain, in all the years I've been here. EVERY day. It's getting old. Is this an unusual year?

Well during August the rain has slowed down at least in my area, But it has started back up. It does seem like we have more rain then I can ever recall, but I am not complaining my grass started to turn brown after a few days of no rain.

I haven't had to water my outdoor potted plants. In fact, they are overflowing!

Really?? It rains every day here from June - September. 1 hour shower then gone....I think that's pretty standard.

I'm down in Miami and June and a lot of July were really wet,like it rained just about every day.I think the last couple of weeks it hasn't been as bad but it could also vary by areas,for example yesterday I went up to Sawgrass Mills in Broward and it was dry and then when I drove back to Kendall I saw some flooded streets like it had rained pretty hard for a while.Anyways we're in the wet months (June-September) so daily rain isn't really surprising.

Be grateful.

They'd love this out west. it's why FL's droughts are not nearly as severe as what you see out there

UH, Jonah, I understand that, BUT it has been raining all day or most of the day, NOT one hour, as usual. Look out your window.

This kind of unusual but the good news is perhaps we won't have drought-like conditions in the dry season (October through January). The funny thing though is that we're barely ahead for the year-to-date numbers....
