If it would stop raining we might be able to see what the weather's like

Although I'm in the north west of England and despite the heavy rainfall, we are lucky not to have been affected by the horrendous floods that have struck Lancashire, Yorkshire and Cumbria. Some of those places have been really badly hit, some repeatedly.

The SC just added up the rain we collected in our rain gauge for 2015 and it was more than I thought..11.17 inches total. Time for a new chart for 2016. It will be interesting to see how much we get with El Nino upon us this year.
Too late to edit.. Our total rainfall at our house last year was 7.0 inches. A normal year is 15"

Glad I patched up several areas of my roof last week. Hope they hold up.....especially if you don't know exactly where the rain water is entering from.
Raining now, and expecting good rain totals this week.

I'm sure glad I had my roof repaired last year too, RF, when a big windstorm blew a good sized patch of shingles off. We don't have but a couple of roofers here in this small town, and now I don't have to worry about the roof when the heavy rains come.

It rained here last night but had quit by the time I woke up - the rain you all are having down south is headed this way and is expected to hit this afternoon. It's going to be a wet week, that's for sure.

My business suffers when it rains like this but on the other hand I feel happy and cozy all over... I love to just stare out the window when it's raining... I stopped at TJ's on my way to work this morning and picked up some tea bags and snacks so I can cozy up by the front window with them..

It is, isn't it? Sunshine 300 days a year sounds nice, but doesn't leave much for weather conversation.

Probably a good idea to cancel your lunch, just to be on the safe side.

Exactly. People in these parts have little driving in the rain experience. Wow, it's just pouring down..1.6 inches in the last 3 hrs.

Whoa....cold there where you are, Marc!
Kay, wow, over an inch so far...!

RF...I LOVE to sit by the window and watch the rain, too. My retired neighbors across the street open their garage door, park themselves on lawn chairs in the garage, and watch it rain while they're having their coffee.
