Very true but if it were only February it'd not be so bad, but this had been going on for months now with no sign of a break!!!!

I'm feeling your pain . We had our second day of rain in California this rainy season and it washed out the boys tennis lesson! What a bad three hours it chase to rain. Unbelievable. We should have scheduled for the afternoon, everything is dry now.

We should probably lump all the bad months into some sort of season. Perhaps we could take the words wind and wetter and merge them together and get the name for this season...

No no - this is unprecedented - record bad weather in the South.

Other than slightly warmer, it's apparently been quite a normal winter here on the east coast of Scotland... To be fair, it's almost normal for summer

In view of the Armageddon that seems to be unfolding I was wondering if this was the understatement of the season.

+1 at least it's mild & we ain't head deep in snow. If this rain had fallen as snow it would be up to the rooftops.
