I'd tell you to send them here, but we won't see clear skys again until Saturday. We've actually had 3 days of straight sunshine here in SE PA, and let me tell you, it is sure welcome. The sun is shining brightly now, but we're doomed to another thunderstorm later today.

It started raining an hour ago, now it's pouring. The weatherman said once it started, it would happen all day. He's probably right.

It's been a sauna down South for over 26 days. Temps been averaging 100's. Would love to get some of your rain. My son and DIL are going to Mattipoisette tomorrow until Saturday. Maybe they can bring up some dry weather for you to enjoy. icon_lol.gif

Send the rain my way...PLEASE!!! We just had something like 11 days straight with temps over 100 and a terrible drought. icon_cry.gif We were supposed to have had a "cool down" this week with temps around 97 - 99, but I don't think that's happened.

If I could lasso these clouds and tow them down there, they sure would be.
Hope you get some relief soon, but not too much, all at once, like here.

Oh boy I wish we could send this weather down South to you all.

On June 25 our local weather person reported that 20 out of the first 25 days of June were rainy or cloudy.

Today it's POURING, with intense thunder and lightening and right now at 3:30 in the afternoon I have my lamps on in the house because it's so dark.

This is just such depressing weather. icon_sad.gif

Oh, my goodness, blue sky! Yes, I'm pressing my luck, because they're saying it's going to rain again later. This morning the weather guy said that we were 170% over normal rainfall for June.

I'm happy though, that we're going to have good weather for the 4th. I'm trying to talk my son and his girlfriend into going to a museum in NYC, since we get into some of them free, with our Bank of America cards.

I'm also from northern NE, and let's put it this way:

My daughter and I have now taken to going on "slug count walks" instead of our usual walks to the playground, etc.

In our yard, I have organized what we like to call the:
"Slug re-location project". All my plants are in Potters except my sunflowers. The slugs have taken over the marigolds, so I decided to move them to the over-watered broccoli plant... they protested and somehow (without leaving a slime trail) made it back to the marigold plant potter a foot away. icon_confused.gif This is right out of a sci-fi movie... can they jump?
~ Oh, and I've recently gone from being disgusted by slugs to: "awwwww" when I saw the baby slugs. They are actually quite cute. icon_smile.gif

My neighbor finds it odd that I'll handle slugs but I won't eat tomatoes grown in his "poop" garden (chicken manure). I guess I'm a complex woman. icon_rolleyes.gificon_smile.gif
