The South didn't lose the war, it just snowed half an inch.

Yep sounds like the drivers around here - all it takes it a little bit of rain and there's chaos on the roads.

Expecting some rain this weekend - not looking forward to having to drive anywhere during the rain.

As mentioned in the Texas flood thread, we had an abundance of rain back in may--June not so bad either--bit over three inches. Now it is July, and the rain gauge runneth over. Literally. Yesterday dumped 1.2 inches from a little system that passed through. Had pretty steady light rain all night and then this morning, the gates opened. At 11:30 I dumped the gauge again since it wouldn't hold any more (5 inch gauge). Hasn't let up since then. Couple of picks of the drive and stock pond:

That's a lot of water in a hurry. Stay safe. We are having very spotty rain. Lots of pop-up afternoon thunderstorms. If you are under one you get dumped on. If not it's bone dry. I started a soaker hose this afternoon and we just had a thunderstorm pass over. Campus and almost 0.2 inch of rain. We may have had a little more. I need to get a good rain gauge.

Here in Denver the weather has been quite unusual this spring and summer - lots of cloud cover and about 40% more rain than average. I'm actually encountering mosquitoes this year - in previous years finding a skeeter was a novelty.

I suppose we need the rain, and I sure can't complain in light of the flooding that some are experiencing, but it's not normal here. Bad hail storm a month back. That in itself is fairly normal, but the fact that it hit my block was an unwelcome change.

Southern New Mexico also had the wettest May and June I can remember in the past 25 years or so, Steve. We're talkin' only a few inches, but that's a whole gaggle more than usually falls in that area at that time of year.

We generally whine if we miss more than one night of work due to rain during those two months and this season I think we missed six and I drove home in heavy rain on a couple others.

Very unseasonal. Their "monsoon season" doesn't usually start 'till the end of June or early July. Haven't heard how it's been since I left there at the end of June.

Keep seeing reports that a major el nino is forming up--potentially the biggest since 98. That's good news for rainfall in the SW, but not so good for some other sections of the country. It will, (if it gets it's stuff together) end the global warming hiatus just in time for the big conflab in Paris in December. Even though it --El nino/la Nina cycles-- have nothing at all to do with CO2, you can bet the alarmist will be pushing it for all they can get.

Won't attempt to explain it as I'm not a weatherperson, but Co Springs has had double the amount of precip. normal by this time of the year.

Glad your not in Tampa. 20" in the last 2 weeks.
Glad I live in a high newer development with good run off to a big lake and into the river. No flooding anywhere near me. Not so for some in flatter farm type field areas or older parts in Tampa where the storm drains have a hard time with the water.

Southeastern Wisconsin is officially "good weather challenged".

Several inches snow has come to town.

Seems you got quite a bit more than we did Tonto. Only saw about 2-3" in Menomonee Falls.

We ended up with about 10" of the fun stuff. Nice and heavy/wet snow too, just to make it interesting.

Ah, but that's a good base for the ski areas Dave.

Just rain and humidity here for the last few days... Finishing a job and the temp/humidity gauge showed 84/84 the other day. It's not a dry heat.
