You could send a little our way.  It's been drier than a fiddlers fart for the last 3 weeks.

I only had to mow 4 times during the Summer... We were lucky it rained just before the 4th or they would have banned the fireworks...  Anyway more clouds today and another chance of rain today and tonight...  Texans can't drive in the rain and it makes a long wet night for me... UGH!

  For those (like me!) who've forgotten what rain is:
     

Rain is liquid precipitation, as opposed to other kinds of precipitation such as snow, hail and sleet. On Earth, it is the condensation of atmospheric water vapor into drops heavy enough to fall, often making it to the surface. Rain is the primary source of fresh water for most areas of the world, providing suitable conditions for diverse ecosystems, as well as water for hydroelectric power plants and crop irrigation. However, not all rain reaches the surface; some evaporates while falling through dry air. This is called virga, a phenomenon often seen in hot, dry desert regions. The METAR code for rain is RA.

Rain is also known or suspected on other worlds. On Titan, Saturn's largest moon, infrequent methane rain is thought to carve the moon's numerous surface channels. On Venus, sulfuric acid virga evaporates 25 km from the surface. There is likely to be rain of various compositions in the upper atmospheres of the gas giants, as well as precipitation of liquid neon and helium in the deep atmospheres.

This is usually our dry season. We have has 15 days out of 18 that it has rained this month. It is going to be very hard to drive into the woods with out getting stuck this year. It will mess up a lot of people that focus on hunting water holes because of the abundance of water this year.
