    Oh my, I go to work and come home to naked rain dancing! hehe... I wish I could send you the rain we are having here. It has rained here 12-14 days in a row. My little pond is overflowing, my yard is a swamp, water is up to the bottom of the bridges all over town. It has been terribly wet. I hope it wont mean that we have a very dry summer, but I am ready for a little sunshine without rain. All of these cloudy days are wearing me out. LOL

    Cheers,
    BD

    You are pretty far south if that is in your region. I used to rent at Indian Rocks Beach

    Keep it up folks!! Looks like it's starting to work!! How about it Cin? Did you get some rain today?

    PS Darwin did a little rain dance for you over the BGE. I won't go into detail but at least the neighbors didn't call the cops heeheehee.

    You must have done a pretty dance as we got 1/4" of rain this evening. Which is more than we have gotten in many months. I would have loved to see the beanie
    Thanx, Cin

    We still haven't had a drop, although my neighbor said they were flooded out about two miles from here yesterday.
