here's an idea :idea: , strap the bike into a fiberglass boat, wear your rain gear, remove the rear wheel and put a paddle wheel in its place, that way you can skim across the water and stay dry at the same time :P :D. just think of all the power you'll have with a 5 speed motorized paddle bike boat. now steering might be a problem. you'll have to have someone sitting in the back of the boat manning the rudder to make it steerable. hey, it was just a thought :lol:

I feel your pain. I read that we have had more rain this year than we did all of 2014 and it is supposed to continue.

I'm in the same boat as you. (Pun intended). I have a rain gauge in the back yard and so far for May it has collected almost 18 inches. Some of my trees are beginning to drown. They can't breathe. Leaves dropping and the tips of the branches are shriveling up and turning brown.
We are leaving next week for California and the forecast is for a 50% chance of rain. Prolly gonna get wet. Oh well!

18 inches in a day! We dont get that much in a good year. My water tanks would never run dry!

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.

No, not in a day. For the month of May. We have since received 4 more inches for a monthly total of 22 inches. Yesterday we had 3 inches in 1.5 hours. Rain is in the forecast for the next 7 days. Our yearly average is 39 inches.

I think we be livin' "under the dome". Oodles & gobs of rain all around us & we only got half an inch this past week while we were in Wichita visiting. Rained there almost every day.
Today is the oldest you've ever been,
yet the youngest you'll ever be,
so enjoy this day while it lasts.

Well , history has been made here . Local lake has overflowed for only the 4th time in history . In flow of water is 6 times the amount versus the outflow . It might be time to paddle out of here :(

I misspoke, we have had more rain just in May than we had all of 2014 and more predicted each day into June.
And as others have said, it's not just light rain, but downpours.
Lots of flooding happening because the already soaked ground doesn't know what to do with the rest.

Hasn't Oklahoma been in a severe drought for the last several years?
