    It's been raining pretty much constantly up here, with frequent armageddon-like cloudbursts.
    I hadn't seen the news all day Saturday, so seeing shit like this on FB Sunday was a shock. Lots of flash-flooding around where I work (Clifton), and where some friends live (Little ferry), including a car dealership getting washed away!

    And the dialy forescast for the rest of forever seems to be chance of thunderstorms.
    Who's in charge of this shit anyway?

    I feel your pain! My son was just in New Jersey hiking and he said the rain there (and pretty much everywhere along the trail) was relentless. Today is the first day there's no rain forecast for Georgia in a long time. :banana:

    This strangeness has been happening:
    • The forecast says late afternoon showers.
    • It doesn't rain all day. At all.
    • After dinner, like every evening, my wife and I sit on the front porch and do a crossword puzzle together.
    • 5 minutes after we sit down, it starts raining.
    • We take the cushions off the porch glider and go inside.
    • Within 1/2 hour, it stops raining. The 1/2 hour we usually spend out there.
    Now, if this happened once, it'd be amusing. But it's happened FOUR times in the last two months.
    I'm taking it personally by now.
