    Don't hurry with the ark plans, Donsgal. In the original version it had to rain thirty FEET per hour for 960 hours (40 days) to flood the Earth to the tops of mountains.

    We've had a couple days of rain here in northern Arkansas too.

    Kesoaps, when we were in the Pacific "Northwet" local folks told us that it only rains once a year -- from November to May.

    While "trapped" in Washington finishing a contracted project into Fall we verified their statement. It took several days in the Desert Southwest to dry out after that.

    Four days of rain is cause for notice? Apparently you have never been through a hurricane!
