Starting grow webbed feet around here. We've gotten 2 or 3 inches of rain nearly every day for the last 10days, and it looks to continue thru the weekend. Enough already. :shock:

On the upside, it's been too wet to mow. :-D

Gene,

Here in Georgia we have had 20"+ in the past 10 days. We have now had 2 days without rain. I had forgotten about the sky being blue and that big bright thing in the sky during the day, I think they call it the "Sun". :D

I went and mowed my 1.5 acres to day. Should have bailed it and sold it for hay. :-D

In Georgia we have lost 10 people in the flooding. The most heart wrenching was a 3 year old that was swept away from his family while they were trying to get out.

Y'all stay dry now, ya hear.

They really could use that much rain, but not that fast! most of it just flooded out and washed away topsoil.

Pictures from the area are just unbelievable. Momma Nature sure was upset at somebody down there!

Glad to here everyone is doing okay, and very sad for the families that lost people. . .

Don't Quack-up under the strain of it Gene :-D

I'm not sure the best name for the weather the world's been getting is 'Global Warming' .. even though that may be the mechanism..... 'Weather Confusion' seems to me to be a more discriptive title. :(
