Not just the rain but the snow we had that peopl like Jal are still getting. That moisture is still in the math so to speak. We haven't dired out all year but for maybe a few short times.
We just had the second major thunderstorm of the day today the second bringing golf ball sized hail here and a tornado just a few miles from us and more that tore up Lambert Airport East of us. They were saying that this last storm was dumping 2 1/2 inches and hour. West of us they had grapefruit sized hail.
That is neither here nor there we have been having storms like this 2 or more times a week each time with hail and heavy rain. Normally lately we have a day or 2 brake than a few days of rain, rinse and repeat.
It is supposed to rain again tomorrow than again Sun through Tue with a break than maybe again next Fri through the weekend.
My yard and garden are so fricking soaked it can't handle any more rain. I have garlic, onions, lettuce, peas, carrots, cabbage etc even some tomatoes in the ground. I am worried I might loose some if not all due to suffocation. It is just so dang wet and we are not getting the chance to dry out. My garden drains well but if you could see how soaked it is you would understand. There is just no where for the water to go right now. It is not flooded right now but during the rains it flood quickly eventually it drains off but it is still so wet it is not funny.
Of course this summer I will be praying for rain and we won't have any so tit for tat right.
