RAIN instead of SNOW

We, in E. Texas, need the rain to STOP! We're talking record rain for last year, and it doesn't look much different for this year...at least it isn't snow...if it was, I think we would have about 15 feet of snow on the ground. There was something like 113 inches of rain in Beaumont last year...it absolutely monsooned last night at about 9pm here...after raining almost all day. Glad I keep my boat ready to go at all times...at least we get to watch the pretty white Egrets fish for minnows and small fish along side the roads in the ever full ditches...which may as well be bayous.

Hey Lynch, I know a couple of places that would give their eye teeth for part of your problem. Why
don't you send some of that rain up here in corn country. They are already starting to worry about the crop this year and our lakes are 6 feet below the spillway. Then there's the Colorado/New Mexico area down around Chama, NM where the Forest Service shut down the Cumbres and Toltec Secnic RR for awhile last season for fear their coal burning locomotives would start a fire. The
shut down has just about bankrupt the economy in
that area that so heavily depends on the tourist dollar. Several of the businesses in Antonito, CO and Chama, NM are just hanging on by their teeth hoping this year will be better. So far the outlook hasn't been good with only something like 3 feet of snow on the pole up at Cumbres pass, an
area that has seen as high as 600" (that's 50 feet).
So, don't be selfish, send some of it where it is needed.
Jim.

First this morning they were saying 3-6" of snow tomorrow. Now they upped it to probably a foot and maybe more. I plow about 45 driveways, but I was happy with the 3-6", much easier to deal with.
I guess we're lucky to have the moisture, lots of people don't. I better get some sleep tonight, won't for a couple days! Then it gets into the 30s and 40s! the rest of the week.
