    It has rained 17 out 21 days the last three weeks here in Columbus, Georgia.
    I cant plant my transplants, seedlings, or seeds period cause the ground is so wet I sink a foot into the ground !
    Good thing my chicks still have 3 weeks to go before they go outside !
    I love rain and thunder every now and then, but this is beginning to cause cabin fever.

    I am maybe 3 hours from you and it has rained over 10" in 4 days, and still raining. The place is little lakes. My garden is drowning. My 5 week old chicks are in their coop and I just came in from fussing over them and trying to keep them dry enough to survive. Forecast isn't comforting either. This is about as bad as when the remnants of hurricanes come through.

    Actually, we need it, we have been in a drought for several years. Just not so much at once!

    I would be paranoid about water if I lived in the western US.
