Dear Mother Nature.....

Ok, I get it. You were sick of everyone in Texas complaining about how, over the past 2 years, we were in a drought and never getting enough rain. Well, we're all shutting up now. We understand how women get when you nag and nag at them about something. Finally, at some point she blows and says "fine! You want rain? You'll GET RAIN!".

I do understand that you got tired of listening to us all complain but don't you think enough is enough? Can't you please give us a break? Please? I'm not saying we don't need rain at all. I mean, it is wonderful to see the lakes back up to their normal levels again but there is a lake close to here that is 20 feet over its normal level. And we do need SOME rain to keep our lawns from turning crunchy but don't you think you're going a bit overboard?

In a little over 2 hours this morning you fed us with 3 more inches rain, to top off the inch (plus) you gave us yesterday...not to mention the rain you've 'blessed' us with over and over over again. As a matter of fact you've helped us set all kinds of records this year as far as rainfall goes.

So, in closing, I'm showing you exibits A, B and C in the photos below and begging fo you to reconsider your anger and just lighen up a bit.

Thanks so much for your consideration.
Your waterlogged fan.

Exibit A: On the other side of the 'weeds' on the right is the creek that has peaked and busted over into our yard.

Exibit B: Looking at this photo you can see that the trampoline and the bench near it are at least a foot under water. This is supposed to be my backyard where my children can play. Now they are housebound without being able to go outside and blow off some 'stink'.

Exibit C: This is the view from my living room window. You know...the window right next the patched roof where a tree branch fell through the other day because of the rain. Anyway, this is what I see when I look out of my window and honestly, I''m not liking it that much!

Wow. :( I didn't know Texas got a lot of rain like that. Michigan, I could see, but Texas? I hope it lets up soon for you.

(Does it at *least* cool it off some?) Hope it gets better soon!

Swimming at your back door, what could be better in the Texas heat. Hope you get some enjoyable weather soon. Maybe you need a trip home to Canada to enjoy our summer weather.
