so, we've had any rainy days in the Northeast, as a matter of fact, Boston has had rain ever day this month., not exactly the same in southern Vermont but close.

I sympathize with those of you in the upper midwest USA whom have had a lack of the wet stuff. Wish I could send some your way.

The other day, exiting a store during a downpour, I met several people whom are physic. THey said, "If you drive in this stuff you are going to get wet." and they were correct. ;-)

If you're tired of that, take a little trip this direction. We haven't had a normal amount of rain going on 2 years now. Our normal is 6"-12". Last year we only had measurable rain a couple days and didn't meet "normal". We're also kickin anywhere from 105°-120° this time of year. Though I understand other places have had some abnormally high temps also...but ours right now are normal.

My wife deals with farmers all over the world and she's heard about the droughts in various parts of the US. My condolences.

I've only lived here 7 years. It's normal to me.
I've lived in "wet" places too. I like this better. At least we have 7-8 months of really nice weather. Riding here isn't all that great though. Flat and straight roads. Summer is too hot to ride and too many snowbirds in the winter. I know I haven't ridden 1000 miles since we moved here.

Texas is normally hot and dry in the summer but for the last several years we've had green pastures all summer. That's just crazy but I for one like it. I read that Texas was once tropical. I wonder if we are on the cusp of returning to those conditions?

I like it down there, especially the hill country. Stationed at Ft. Hood twice then visited a bunch when my son was stationed there. It can definitely rain there, that's for sure.

In Boston we had two official heat waves in June and plenty of days over 90 up to 100. Usually that occurs late July-August.
Now, in July we've had rain for the past three weeks with flash flood warnings today, LOL.
Brutal. My riding has been very little this year so far.

It's the rainy season here in the Phils. 30+ C days and you can almost set your clock that it's going to rain at 4pm - every day.
