OK - I am really sick of the rain

Enough is enough! I just want a couple of days of sunshine - I feel like we should all build an ark. On the plus side Derrick and I almost have lake front property. The field behind us is looking like a lake! We should have our home reappraised! Ha. I know I am just complaining, but I am tired of the rain. Usually winters don't bother me but I want some sunshine - here is a National Headline!

Seattle nearing record for rainy days
By Elizabeth M. Gillespie, Associated Press Writer
SEATTLE — After 22 consecutive days of measurable rain, Seattle is closing in on a record so dismal even forecasters in this city famous for its gray skies are complaining.
With more wet weather predicted over the next several days, Seattle may soon break a record set in 1953. The city saw 33 consecutive days of measurable precipitation then — the most since the National Weather Service office there started tracking rainfall in 1931.

Though Seattle is famous for its rain, the city's average annual rainfall from 1970 to 2000 was 37.07 inches, compared to 49.71 inches for New York City.

Well at least we live in a record breaking area! :) That's something to be proud of! JK. The only good thing for me is the rain gets my rear back in the gym...where I work out much harder than when I just run outside! I'm just trying to be positive here, that's all I could come up with. Aren't we on like day 25 now??

Yes I think so, my problem is the gym I joined is open yet - so I am stuck inside! ugh.

I loved it when my gym hadn't opened yet, because I didn't feel guilty about not working out! It was the perfect gym membership! I was like, "It's not my fault I can't work out!" :)
