If the sun comes out with these temps, we are going to be mowing lawns in January.

That's a creek. It's probably about 10' higher than normal.

I know! My grass is getting as green as early spring. There is so much moisture that moss is starting to grow in places I have never seen before.

I do mean it has been raining! At times very hard and for 2 days straight. Custer should know as he lives on the other side of town from me.

Our office expansion is way behind schedule and a good hunk of it is due to weather.

Now we have decided to expand the plant by 1/3 and I was just given that project this a.m.

Steel is about $150 per ton.

I don't know about aluminum but I'm guess all commodities are high. Manufacturing and construction are at pretty high levels.

Well I now have a swiming pool in my basement about 18-20" deep the heater and the hotwater tank are under. I put a small pump in it but all it can do is stay even. The water is about 2' deep in the front yard. When you guys get those arks done pick me and the family up,we'll be the ones on the roof.LMAO we are not going to get any relief
until Sat. rain till then.Try and stay dry and keep laughing or you'll cry.

Sorry to hear that Cephus. My basement is probably leaking too, but I have a walkout basement, so it can never pool up. My buddy has that problem and he had a bad storm where the electric went out and his sump stopped. Talk about a disaster.

Well they did stock Huey Run today. If it keeps up, I'll be able to catch trout from my window. Just imagine if Huey lets loose, and Curtisville, and the Consol dam. I'll either need the ark or some good running shoes to haul my butt up the hill. And then watch everything in Mannington disappear. I'm not to worried though. Cephus knows what I'm talking about but for the rest, I have 2 lakes within 1/2 mile of my house and a 3rd only a mile away. Lots of water sitting around me. But it does make for some darn good fishing. If the rain let's up I'm going fishing. I've got a taste for fresh trout.

OH GEE THANKS THAT MADE ME FEEL BETTER If you could just keep it there for about another day it would be nice.LMAO I got the water down to about 4" now so I'm gaining on it. Sang you at work.
Yup, I'm back at work, I feel horrible, but 2 days at home with the kids can motivate a man! Actually 5 days if you count the 3 day weekend too.
Mrs. Sang needed a break from me as well. :D
