    After fighting rain most of the spring to get my garden out it is now to the point I need rain. The last cucumbers I got are bitter a sign of not enough water . Beans are not growing like they should and squash is slowing down expecting rain Wednesday for sure could get it tonight or tomorrow . I finally got a mower deck for my new walking tractor something I like to mow with and the grass stops growing:confused:

    Much needed rain but I wish it would have held off until we finished the scheduled outdoor activities tonight at VBS

    I love rain especially accompanied by lightning and thunder.
    We dont get much of those here anymore.

    Plus they help save on the water bill when you got a big yard.

    I'd like some rain that actually cooled us off for a bit instead of being immediately turned into humidity.

    We are supposed to have a lot of rain tomorrow . Tonight is about a 40 % chance I am hoping that it holds off until later . Tonight is our slip n slide night at VBS we build a 100 foot slip n slide down the hill for the kids . Don't need lightning around with 90 kids outside

    Wish I could send it your way. Most of my area of this state has been in flood stages for the last month.

    Until 3 weeks ago we were the same. Then until yesterday it dried up we had an hour + of heavy rain yesterday. We got through Vacation bible school tonight and it is now raining. We are supposed to have rain tomorrow. This is our big night at VBS we do a 100 foot slip and slide down the hill

    LOL

    I've been in my house 19+ years. Never bought a sprinkler. Somehow enough rain always shows up to force me to have to mow ... :(

    L'chaim!
