LOL, Tammy42. When it rains, it pours, right? Wyoming is the other side of the coin. We got rain last night, maybe as much as 1/10". That's pretty darned exciting. Our average rainfall here is 15", and it rains, maybe, once every two weeks. I am always so happy when it happens. Rainfall is so full of nutrients, and it lacks all the chemicals of regular water, like chlorine.
I can sympathize with you, though. I bred horses for 15 years in the Sioux Falls, SD, area, and extended periods of rain were the pits, literally!
