    [​IMG] I love the rain [​IMG] and it seems like forever since we had a really good rain.(Southern California) We had a total of 3 rain storms in the past 8 months and non of them were of any substance. Sorry for those of you stuck in a rainy state, just remember it is better to have to much of something than not to have any at all.....

    We've been in a drought all summer. People on city water were on "water restrictions" where they couldn't be caught trying to water there grass or they'll be fined. I have a well so that never affected me but the lakes look pityful and the trees are dying and I couldn't keep my garden alive this year.

    Send it my way Bubba!!!

    We'll take the rain after Oct. 21 which ends our State Fair. They are hoping for 1 million folks this year.

    Hey Bubba,

    We got rain up in Nor Cal too yesterday- a LOT of it- puddles still on the ground this morning, and more in the forcast for early next week.

    Thank <insert deity you worship here> the rainy season is finally here!!!
     
  8. Hi Bubba - i'm in Southern California, too. i love the rain also, except i have not gotten my pen watertight yet. It's a mish mash of tarps, not strategically arranged, so water gets in unless i am out pushing the tarps up to flip the water out (which is what i was doing all night last night). [​IMG]

    i guess i need to get my act together before winter really sets in. i think this little storm is it for the week though, right?

    Idk it cleared out pretty quick here. Dumped rain for a good 3 hours at night then it was barely sprinkling. By the time I woke up it was sunny skys all around....

    Good while it lasted!

    I love the rain. I'm not a summer person by any means. If I wake up and hear it raining, I know it's going to be a good day. Good thing I live in Oregon. My only complaint is the muddy paw prints on my white kitchen floor that I have to mop up six times a day, my dogs just refuse to learn how to wipe their feet. [​IMG]
    I just bought my very first batch of chickens yesterday. I'm hoping my ladies don't mind the rain too much. Their run is under a canopy of pine trees so they should stay pretty dry.
