Every day, every day, every day
It won't stop
More to come
Alligators, snakes and frogs love it
I'm having a bad hair day
I watch news, people crying, flooded, 4 inches of rain in an hour
4 foot of rain here past few days.4 to 6 inches every day. I saw a rabbit in a tree today

Would gladly take some of that rain here. All the streams/rivers are drying up. Makes for a slow fishing season :(

We're getting just the right mix, you're swamped (no pun intended) and Gaspe, my favorite Atlantic Salmon fishing spot is desperate for rain. Crazy !!!!!

I concur with Chris, just got back from a crown reserve trip and we need water bad. We could trade some rain for some world class eel fishing Bud

Been dry for three years straight now. No snow in the winters. It affects the migration of the salmon, obviously. We have had the wettest June in 140 years though, so there is plenty of fish to be caught. Something is off...

FROST, only FROST around here is in freezer, hasn't rained past 2 days. There is still a sun. News giving more rain coming. Got to spray crawfish pond today. I'll be throwing rice seed in a couple weeks. My boats ready for shrimping. Usually opens August 17th. I'm so looking forward to go out on my boat. Darlas all ready too. Hope there's shrimp. Not hearing good reports but guess I'll just have to get out there and push. My foot is still not healed. Wrap my leg in a garbage bag but i gotta get out of this recliner or ill lose my mind

Try picking up neoprene booties that are used by scuba divers.  Heavily tape the top.  Put plenty of whatever goop the doc prescribed topically on the foot.  Those won't puncture and dump Louisiana ooze on your bad foot like a trash bag will.  Or, if you can stand the heat, wear CLEAN, NEW waders and don't let any water/muck get in over the top.

Goop meds, I'll let you guys know the treatment, tried for a long time using antibodies, everything you could possibly think of, nothing work, thru lab work discovered type of bacteria, very bad and immune to antibodies. I was sent home with a strange treatment. Cut finger off a glove, fill with powdered sugar and keep this over toe, 24/7. Actually? Only thing that seems to have worked, slow but it's getting smaller. Go figure, diabetic being treated with sugar. The type of bacteria I have cannot live in a sweet inviornment
