    It must just be raining on you. We had no rain at all for months up here in the summer...

    Maybe you could put in for some of Nova Scotia's November snow, we surely have some to spare.

    Don't forget your toe rubbers.

    And what's the deal with the broken lines painted on the street? That so the rain knows where it's aloud to run off?

    You're not allowed to stop or park where the broken zig zags are.
    Send us the snow!

    As the only Strat Talk member who has to be netted in to stop him leaving home, it seems that this has affected your judgement. We actually had a summer this year! And you have already forgotten it?

    Dear oh dear.... :rolleyes:

    It doesn't work, there's a hole in the netting. So we see them looking into the office.
    In the Summer we had one just stroll into the office when the window was open.

    We've been in a state of defacto draught for at least 10 years now...
    There has been a wet spot here and there...
    Just enough to keep the suicide rate down...
    But it's a draught ravage no less...
    As
    Punctuated clearly by the God awful fires...
    But
    I suspect constant rain such as yours
    And
    Tacoma Wa
    Has it's faults..

    It looks as though the street line painters had a few to many before work

    That's a lot of consecutive days of rain!

    If the rain comes
    They run and hide their heads
    They might as well be dead
    If the rain comes
    If the rain comes

    When the sun shines
    They slip into the shade
    And sip their lemonade
    When the sun shines
    When the sun shines

    Rain, I don't mind
    Shine, the weather's fine
