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.
