I just needed to say that. I has been raining here in SE PA for about 3 months now!!:mad: Or at least thats what it feels like.:( I can't wait til my cruise...hopefully it will be sunny then. With my luck though, it will rain the whole time.

Thanks everyone for listening....I just needed to vent.;)

I feel your pain. Here in SW VA, we've had 3 days of sun in the last 3 weeks. It's getting old.

Just wanted to share with you. I work in Lionville Pa. and I agree about the lousy weather! We are anxiously awaiting our Aug. 2 western Magic cruise. Here's hoping for sunny days ahead.

we've had 1 1/2 day's in a row of sunshine this week and guess what??? it's going to rain AGAIN tomorrow... and of course my town put a water ban on!!! It rained for almost two weeks straight and yes we have a water ban... we can water out lawns ONCE a week before 8a.m and after 5pm. BUT we can still wash our cars... yeah that makes sense... use the precious water to wash your car

Thanks for letting me vent... I HATE THE RAIN TOO, especially when my 3 sump pumps in my basement are going... at least I have them aimed towards my gardens~~~

It seems like we have a week of rain with one sunny day thrown in to irritate us. I think my cats are taking a cruise in my soggy basement. Think happy thoughts and dream about your cruise!!!

The past month I have been pretending I live in Seattle w/my daughter and family....LOL. Now I know ~ the rain would get old, I would eventually get depressed and probably would not survive w/o lots of sun shine ^i^. I can't help but wonder what the plan is and why the rain can't be spread out over the summer? Last year it was so dry our 500 ft deep well went dry and we had to dig a new one. Now my new lawn and flowers are so wet they are dying.
Are we ever satisfied??? Go figure!!!
:sunny: :teeth: :sunny: :smooth:

It started raining here about an hour ago. It rained last weekend. We're supposed to get up to 3 inches of rain tomorrow and possible more on the weekend.

I just bought a pair of reading sunglasses and I want to try them out at the pool!

Julie: SW VA me too. Rain, rain what can I say. :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:
We mow if it isn't raining and do the wedding march because the mower has such a hard time.

Any idea of what to do in the house with kids???:confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

I have run out of ideas.

I don't have any kids... but I keep putting in a new DVD for hubby every 2 hours... ;) How old are your kids? This would be the perfect time to teach them something that might be lost otherwise. Growing up, I learned how to sew, crochet, and can tomatoes and jelly during bad weather :)

I know what you mean about mowing... it's to the point where if there's a day without rain, I mow cause who's knows when we'll get the chance again.

Enough already....geez....

I believe it's going to rain for 40 days and 40 nights. Here in Pittsburgh I think we only have another 5 to go---Aug 2 can't get here fast enough. beth

The incessant rain reminds me of Ray Bradbury's The Illustrated Man, played by Rod Steiger. He is searching for a woman who filled his body with totoos that come to life. The resulting vignettes are quite profound, in my opinion. In one tatoo story, 3 (?) men crash-land on Venus - a planet where the rain never ever stops. It is easy to drown just breathing and the continuous noise of falling rain will drive a human insane. They must reach an "outpost" to survive.

Just a thought...

We've had two nice days so far, Monday and Tuesday. It is now going to rain for Wed. and Thur. It will clear a little for Friday and then this weekend-RAIN!!!!! I wouldn't mind the rain so much if it would just warm up a little. I'm not asking for much. I just don't want my heat coming on in June anymore!!:mad: I feel bad for the kids, all the end of the school year activities are designed for outdoors- field day, BBQ and they keep gettign postponed. School will be out before they can do them:(

I agree with everybody! The weather has been the absolute pits!!!! As a matter of fact it is raining right now as I type this post. It seems like fewnice days we had are during the week when I have to work. Hopefully it will be nice on Saturday since we are going to an outdoor graduation party but it doesn't look good!

I agree with Carole. Here on LI the only happy occupants are the ducks. My brother in Arizona can't buy a drop of rainwater. They are as dry as a bone. But cheer up, the next few days say only a CHANCE of a shower instead of drenching rain.

Sure makes me want to bask in that Carribbean sun............:p :p

Hi Mrs. G.

I have a brother who is in Las Vegas. He said that the temperature is 20 degrees higher than normal. I'm trying to get him to send some of the heat this way but it hasn't worked yet. Oh well, maybe we'll see the sun soon!

hey, ohio Mickey!

I was wondering who was going to respond to Buckeroos Dad's post! I would have, but you beat me to it!

good one!


:p :p :p :p

and Buckeroos Dad: I can't wait till I get on "the plane, the plane!" too bad it won't take me to Fantasy Island, but Orlando is a good second choice! ;)

I live in So. Delaware and yes it is raining again this morning. They are calling for rain this weekend, oh yeah! We camp alot, and we have camped now in the rain just about every weekend we go. At least most of you responding to this post have your cruises to look forward to, mine is over, oh boo-hoo, boo-hoo! Waiting until January to book our next cruise, in April 2005, so far away, but the looking forward to a cruise is so much fun. I think if it keeps on raining I am going to have to buy little rain boots for my little dog!!

Yeah for this thread! I thought I was the only one who is going crazy with this weather. I'm grumpy, irritable and downright hard to live with. When you say it's been raining for 3 months, you're not kidding. We've had more rain and dreary days since April than anyone should have in an entire year. You don't feel motivated to do anything! My kid's ballgames have been canceled to the point that I don't know that we'll get them all made up! I also live in Central PA (between Harrisburg and State College) and we just haven't had a lot to smile about in the last few months. It's June 4 and I couldn't care less about summer because I don't think we're going to have one.:rolleyes:

I live at the Jersey Shore, about 1 1/2 blocks from the ocean. This morning I left my house to discover that I now have waterfront property! My street looks like a river, and my feet got soaked just crossing the street to the train station. I arrived at my office and found that today is the day they chose to turn the air conditioning on. Now, not only am I wet but I'm cold!

The good side of all this rain is that I knit items to sell so that I can raise money for my DCL cruises. If this bad weather continues, I will have created enough items that I should be able to finance a month or two on the ship! I'm also making a few matching sleeveless sweaters for my granddaughter, my daughter-in-law and me to wear on the cruise in December. At this rate, we'll all have an entire wardrobe of new sweaters!

And on an entirely off-topic note, I have to brag a bit about my son (the father of that granddaughter). He took the test yesterday for the TV show Jeopardy, and he passed! I'll post a message on this board if he gets chosen to be on the show!

Hi Disney 3144

I couldn't help but to notice your date for your second cruise. Looks like we will be on the same cruise. Only 561 days away - but who is counting!!!
