It happens most of the time in life. when you need one, you cant get! when you dont need the one, it will come towards! is not it?

Seriously, the essential irony of weather.

Australia is famous for having floods and draughts at the same time.

Did you mean droughts ? I'd normally ignore minor typos, but in this case it does make a difference.

Maybe Ulf really meant what he wrote.

We had a very bad summer here in the Netherlands this year. I think it was the wettest summer since 1906 or something like that. There was a lot of rain in July and August. And that while spring was unusually warm and dry.

True...Texas needs it much worse that Missouri right now.

EFH - I hereby grant you permission to re-direct the rain you were sending to the mid-west to Texas instead.

It has to stop soon, or I will have to build an ark.

We had some water in the basement from Hurricane Irene.
Three days ago, we got an inch of rain. Two days ago, we got 3 inches more. Yesterday we got 7+ inches of rain.

If you stand in your kitchen and take a cup of water, throw it on the floor and see how big the area is. Yesterday, I used my shop vac to vacuum up the water in my basement. It holds 12 gallons (~48 liters). I filled it more than 20 times, I lost count. I could believe 50 times.

I've lived in this house 28 years, and this is only the third time that I've had any water in the basement.

Its still raining.

I'm all for that. My sister lives in eastern California. She says she wants it as well.
I"m sure that both Bear and my sister would be happy with even half of the 7 inches of rain I got yesterday

I remember a story I read as a kid where a guy was digging a tunnel from Florida to New England to transport some of the warm weather up there. His plan failed though when a hurricane came through it. Jump to 2011, and New England gets a hurricane without even needing to dig a tunnel.

I'm late to this party, but ... yes, Australians are famous for enjoying draughts whatever the calamity, be it flood, fire, or famine. If there are no calamities, then what better way to celebrate than another draught?
