    I've followed several subject lines on here and many of them make mention of the vast amounts of rain in their respective areas. To that degree I just want to say;
    RAIN???, hell you people don't know what rain is like. I live in Illinois, flatlanders country. I've been under water for so long that as I type this e-mail I have to wipe the fog off the face mask, and adjust my snorkel for the new breathing height.

    I've been under water for so long, that my waterbed is water-logged!

    I've been under water for so long, the Titanic has a better chance of seeing dry land.

    I've been under water for so long, my fin has gone limp

    I've been under water for so long, .....<go ahead, try one>

    WE get about 13 feet of rain a year. Yeah, you read that right. FEET! We have good drainage, though.

    It rains so hard it is like living in a car wash.

    When the kids want to play outside, we put them in wetsuit and give them a snorkle on their way out the door.

    We spend our days looking out the window watching the salmon swim by.

    We've decided to change crops. We are going to grow Kelp.

    The first calf of the season was born with gills.
