Rain, rain, go away!!!

Postby DanEpps » Wed, May 27 2009, 6:45AM

I, Dennis Blackburn and other members in the deep south have complained about drought for the last two or three years, but enough rain already--the drought is over now and we are drowning! We have had rain at least three days a week since the beginning of the year and are now in our sixth week of rain every day!

What say you Dennis---enough already?

How about the rest of you--want some rain? Take ours for a while. :joker:

My wife says God is in control and he knows what is best. I say - keep the rain coming as long as it doesn't interfere with my bicycle riding or gardening. I did 77 miles last weekend on the bike and got all my yard work done as well as getting 6" of rain. Our lakes are still down about 2 feet. AND keep the Georgia rain coming down the rivers to Florida.
:lol:

This year is the first time in recent memory that I recall Lake Allatoona (near Cartersville GA) having water come all the way up to the historical water's edge. I'm not sure how other lakes, like Lanier, are faring.

Dan,
We are happy to let you have it. Here in Hoosier territory, while we had a great day for the Indy 500, we have had more than our share of rain. Lst week's crop report shows Indiana is only 67% planted and historical averages are in 98+%. That does not bode well for the price of corn and beans for us consumers, not even to mention the price of gasoline / ethanol.
So keep the rain while we try to feed and fuel the world from here!

Here in NC I've had to mow my yard the last 4 week with wet grass. Only once did it have enough time to dry out good enough. But I say bring the rain so these weather people will stop being so over dramatic!

We are actually supposed to be getting a few days respite from the rain starting today. My wife insisted that I have the pool open last weekend (Memorial Day) and the water is still about 65°F.

Rain???
Did you guys take pictures?
We don't see that climactic event very often, the sun gets in the way.

Double it and add 30 to change C to F. At least you guys have summer,we are freezing down here and wet.Dropped to 6 c the other night.(or 6+6+30=42F)

That's a pretty good approximator Al.

For those that want precise conversions, here is the formula:

F=((C*9)/5)+32

31C=87.8F

((31*9)/5)+32

31*9=279
279/5=55.8
55.8+32=87.8

For F to C, here is the formula:

C=((F-32)/9)*5

90F=32.22C

((90-32)/9)*5

90-32=58
58/9=6.444
6.444*5=32.22

Dan,
I thought it was 32 Kilofagums/footpound, or are you discounting extraneous readings from the zodes?
In either case, a serious shift in the algorithm will cause a weather depression and ultimately, a singularity?
Much safer here in the desert. We have no weather, just temperature. Keeps it simple.
Happy thoughts,
