Exclamation Rain Rain Go Away!!!!!

Depending on your specific location, we here in Upstate NY and western VT and Mass. have been getting HAMMERED with RAIN! It has rained everyday for over a week and a half and some days these storm drop as much 5-7 inches in less than an HOUR! The summer is coming to a close and befor eyou know it we will be talking about winterization, fall foliage and SNOWMOBILES! But for now, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give 75-80, sunny and dry!!!!

Girls.


We've been boating all week. Just keep bigger goggles around for when it's really coming down.

Maybe you can import some of the hot air from St Petersburg to blow the weather out to sea.

It's been much the same here!
Raining like mad for over a week now. 5-7inches per hour a few times.

Weather has been horrible in Pittsburgh also. Then once the clouds dry up we have to dodge phone pole size logs and trees that are floating down the rivers. This summer sucks.

T2x,

My appologies to Doreen. This last week has been NUTS! I have not spoke to teh glass guy since Thursday. Don't want to bother him. He says it will be ready for the 1000 Islands.

Dinner......not necessary at all my friend. It was great having you and I too look forward to seeing you soon. Maybe that leaf peeping run GLH is talking about?
