    SO I put my chicks in their coop a week ago, on a sunny, warm, Oregon spring day.......it started raining the next day, AND HASN'T STOPPED!!! My poor birds!
    The have access to the coop, and half their run sheltered from the rain, but, I feel so bad for them! The were always warm and dry in the brooder, then..KABLAM! MUD and RAIN!

    And, I want to work more on the run, putting a permanent roof on it, and I want to plant more flowers, and hang clothes on the line, and let my caged 3 yr old outside to play in the sun, and.......
    I am a true Oregonian, and normally LOVE the rain, but I have stuff to DO!!!

    Okay, I feel a little better...

    I would [​IMG] some rain, will you point it in the right direction!?!?!!? I've been out watering our new plantings for the past few weeks and it's a 2hour minimum job that needs done about 2-3 times a week with no rain! Soo I'm doing the rain dance, and if you'll stop your dancing maybe I'll get some!! [​IMG]

    Now you may understand why those of us in the middle of the country have been griping so loudly.
    I saw sunshine today and it scared me. [​IMG]

    Quote:The rain here in Oregon has (in my opinion) gotten lighter over the past 10-15 years, but I am starting to re-think that theory, and agree with English Chick!
    It doesn't seem to be doing anything else here at the moment either!
