Monsoon--AhhhGgghhhh!

Another 10 more days of rain.
If I wanted to live on Ferenginar I would have moved there.

I had to google that. At least it's cooler. It was 87 here. The last 20 miles kicked my butt today. Then I went down to the lake (Michigan) where it was 15 degrees cooler. Ahhh! The hounds appreciated it too.

I wish we were getting more rain here. I really wouldn't mind if it rained like every other day... except for the fact that Chicagoans completely forget how to drive in the rain for some reason.

Oh God no. I understand the only places worse to drive in are L.A., Atlanta, and DC.

Or has someone tampered with the climate control system on Risa?

This year has been ridiculous....I think someone planted a rain forest nearby.
Any bets on when Chantal finds it's way to ATL and parks over us?

At the very least, you need an airboat, but the Gunboat would be cool.
