    Don't ask for it to stop, ask for it to move North! We desperately need rain.

    yeah, but Florida is pretty flat, so I doubt there's much in the way of white water sports down there. all that rain probably just puts pressure on the levees, overflows the lakes, and flushes out the glades.

    I have a trainer and I am so tired of riding in my garage. The humidity is 1000% now and add in the heat and it is just uber miserable. I'd love to send it North, but much like a bad house guest, it just wont go away. It has actually stopped for the last 20 mins so I was able to take my dog out and empty the rain gauge again. My neighbors are from Cambodia and we are negotiating a contract so they can plant rice in my back yard.

    My dad has been at Mayo in Jax for tests the last week and a half, he said he feels like he needs to grow gills to go from the hospital to the car each day.

    Wow, ok, Dad at Mayo, hope everything is ok. Yea, my route that I was planning to ride on Saturday is under a foot of water. It could be worse though, I could have a half a mountain slide away and take my house with it like in San Diego.

    Maybe if you put pontoons on your bike you could navigate those flooded roads.

    Well I had another 2.5 inches today, it's really just depressing now. This reminds me of when I was in Whidbey Island for a while. No wonder so many people are depressed up there.

    A stationary bike is not riding. It has nothing to do with cycling. It's just sweating on an uncomfortable seat.
    As for the rain, though, 19 inches is what we get in Reno in three normal years. And I'd much rather have rain than snow, because it doesn't have to be shoveled, doesn't pile up on my roof and doesn't pack down in the street and make all the 4WD morons think they're God.

    In six days, you've had 1.5 times as much precipitation as we normally get in a year.

    Old joke: The stranger is out in West Texas and asks the old cowboy, "So what's it like to get 11 inches of rain a year?" The cowboy says, "Not bad, except on the day we get it."

    Well, you get 52.64 inches average a year there......

    Could be worse, where my brother lives, in Cebu, in the Philippines, it's a bit over 86" a year, average
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Please, please, God... send some of it to us. We want nice olives and fruit and no more fires...

    I could use a day or two off from cycling, too.
