Damn. is really annoying if you search for anything besides current temperature and the 10 day prediction. I was actually looking (slowly) for a site that is more dedicated to data.

She doesn't have contents insurance, if that's what you mean. Fortunately, most of what's been damaged is easily replacable, for cheaper than the insurance payments would have been. Apart from the cooker, but that is provided by her landlord so will hopefully be covered on their insurance.

It's the pain of living in a damp house and possibly having to leave for a few weeks that's worrying really.

I feel for her. Dampness is one of the worst.

Just saw our forecast - its going to be ONE HUNDRED on thurs and fri.

Sonnofabeeeeyotch. Eff this.

Yikes. I could not cope with temps like that.

I also just saw our weather forecast. They're predicting more flooding Friday and Saturday in my region.

Temperatures here are as high as they ever are in the summer (over 100 degrees, most days,) but we are very fortunate that the rain deficit has finally been catching up. This meant we were allowed to have fireworks this year, which was very exciting for the kids.

CRAZY thunderstorm this afternoon. The streets were flooded past the top of the curb in my neighborhood, and a bunch of trees went down.
This is just from my street alone, and yeah those are power lines across the street too.

At least when the power goes out up there, they can milk by hand. :haha:

Ibby - you're in Vermont now?

Ok. So what are those black people doing on the front porch? ;)

I had that shit happen to me last year. seven of 11 trees came crashing down and it cost 4,000 dollars to chop them up and haul them out. unreal.

TODAY just for something different it's gonna be OVER A HUNDRED! YAYAAAAYYYYYYY!

Trilby 07-07-2012 08:28 AM

A rainy day here in Houston and we needed the rain. Not often that I look at the weather and see that Houston is 4 degrees cooler than where my relatives live in Minnesota! And they generally don't have central air. Oh well they will be knee deep in snow in a few more months! :)

Five minutes ago, the rain was so hard you couldn't see the pavement from the spray of the raindrops--drenching, pouring rain. The lightning flashed, I counted one one-thouKABLAAAAAAMMM!!... wow, that was close. Car alarms honking in fear. When I got to the corner, the fire engine was answering the thunder with all his horns, turned up to eleven. Tha's reallly loud.

Now, blue skies. The whole thunderstorm lasted about twenty minutes. I bet we got a half an inch of rain.

infinite monkey 07-13-2012 02:16 PM

What ees thees theeng you call 'rain'??????? :confused:

I'd kill for rain. Giant fat hard long noisy thunderous lightninged rain.
