    Great pic. Looked like that here earlier today also. Nasty couple days of weather.

    I'm ready for some sunshine for a few days and let things dry up.

    Yes everyone is ok. It looks worse than it actually was. It is actually called a "shelf cloud"... However, there was some rotation around its perimeter which was making me a little nervous! This storm added another couple of inches of rain. Sounds like by tomorrow night we will be over 10" of rain in 48 hours.

    The weather forecast over the next week: Monday- rain. Tuesday- rain. Wednesday- SUNNY. Thursday- rain. Friday- Rain. Saturday- rain.

    If it were only snow. :eek:payup payup

    Send some of that rain this way will ya? No good rains here in a month. You can keep the Tornados:eek: Same thing year after year. Midwest gets flooded while we dry up. Ocean moisture doesn't do us a bit of good anymore

    Yup, We've all been gettin' pounded here pretty good since Wed. of last week w/ not much letting up (like yard is saying). This past weekend end in Whitefish Bay there where many trees down and alot of street flooding. We're in Racine which has a river called the Root River ,which is notorious for overflowing its banks. In all the years I've lived here, this is the worst I've seen it .
    We have lawns to mow and at this point can't even get onto the soft/muddy yards. Its not even a matter of just going around puddles anymore!
    I don't believe any of us would truley want to see that much snow at one time!:eek:

    yeah youve been getting nailed tom!

    We have been getting alot of storms here as well, i love it. Not enough tornados though, there were a few that touched down around here but i didnt get to see them, i was chasing down this one storm but it just got too dark and then went over the lake. the good part is i found diesel for 4.34 while i was out!

    Looks like this week should be hot and dry for us. I had to cancel work today because the grass is nearly floating right now.

    Take the rain :realmad:

    Lost power last night at 9 and finally got it back at 2 this afternoon, had to run 3 houses (ours, grandmas, and a rental) all on generators to keep the sump pumps going and the freezers and fridges somewhat cold. I just want nice weather to ride my atv and be able to go outside without drowning.
