Sorry to hear about you not getting rain. Here is SE Coloraod we went about 7 to 8 years in a drought. Dec 06 into Jan 07 as Im sure you heard we had a blizzard and all summer we have been receiving much needed rain. Although our lakes still look like ponds we are getting better. Hope the conditions change for you.

We just started getting some rain but are still on water restrictions. It will continue through this year. We need a lot more rain than we are getting.

I have lived any droughts. The worst was from 1991 to 1995.
I have not to say that I wish you all the rain you need, but i´m going to say it.
I WISH YOU ALL THE RAIN YOU NEED.

and the worst is only coming!
casualties:
1 life
one of the greatest WW2 monuments (partisan hospital Franja-of which you can read on the net, i'm sure)
100 cars
numerous flooded houses.
probably some worked up roads and bridges


there's a saying about droughts/floods
drought takes one loaf of bread, flood takes two

We have had rain almost everyday for two weeks. It has been nice but I think it might be throwing my bees off. They don't go flying in the rain and the rain is washing the nectar out of the flowers. They have plenty of pollen but the honey stores are not building up the way they should.

The rain should be letting up so I will check again on them in a few days.

I really don't think this is a horrible situation. More like a delay. Which means I may not be able to pull again until I get back from Tassie.

Sincerely,
Brendhan

We have had little to no rain up here as well. When it rained in August it was a deluge, which doesn't help as much as a slow steady rain. Very dry here. Dust kicking up etc. We need rain as the goldenrod is drying up now as well.

I wish that I could send all our rain down south.  We have had nothing but rain.  All the flowers that may have been providing lots of fall flow don't have a chance in blazes of any nectar, the flowers are mostly dead and gone.  The rain can do things that the sun cannot.  It is time to dig all the gardens under to go back to their maker.  Even the anise hyssop would surprise me if it shed a little more nectar, the flowers are not lookin' good at all.  Winter is on its wet, cool way.  Even a couple of days of sunshine couldn't bring these flowers back to life, high doubts.  Oh well, I seriously hope for some good ol' rain for the places that are so dried up, and my best wishes the same.  Awesome day in this beautiful life.  Cindi

Washington has a reputation for being rainy.  It has finally started to rain again after a 2nd long hot dry summer. 
Here in Washington we don't call it rain--It's refered to as liquid sunshine.

Finally, it's raining!  It started at about 5:50 am.  So far we've had .49".  Hopefully we'll get an inch out of it, at least!  I see more coming on the radar.  grin
