Go ahead, ask


Ask me what it is doing outside.

We have set an official record. 28 days, straight, of measurable rain. 6.23 inches were recorded at the Portland Airport. Oh, and for the record, this has been the fifth wettest March recorded in history.

Nope, I'm not bitter.

BZ Training, Portland averages about 40 inches of rain a year. I have no clue what our backyard averages, but right now it feels like 100 inches. :o)))

i feel your pain. or i felt it earlier. everything gets wet. everything gets dirty. i love a thunderstorm, but continual rain gives me the blues.

I feel your pain, too, and we live in the midwest. If it is not raining, then it's freezing rain or slushy snow. Where is the sunshine and what did we do to offend Mother Nature?

Sistertex said...

Awww, Us too...feel for you, HOWEVER...it beats a foot of frozen white stuff, slick as ice, anytime. We are still waiting to see the ground again. Hoping spring will come some day soon around here.

Scritches to all the puppers.

Darlin', we saw the first sun in a month on Monday. To say we danced in the streets would be an understatement. We are at record levels here as well.

Woof! Woof! Weather is a bit odd ... we are still in winter weather. Just have to find ways to keep you occupied indoors. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Is it bad that I've been thinking this March is pretty typical for Oregon? Even with the rain every day, it always lets up for an hour or two, long enough to get a run in with the dogs.

I was super sad that our first lure coursing practice for the year was canceled due to the field being more of a swamp. Hopefully April will dry up a little bit.

Hope you get some sunshine soon!

In good news, I've been told that it can't rain forever! I am sorry that you've had so much rain, though. Sort of like us with our third snowiest winter here.

Bunny says this blog needs more Flocko! I'm sorry, she can be a little demanding.

We hear you loud and clear! and we work outside for a living :(
I think spring must be just around the corner, right?

40 inches! You don't need dogs, you need fish! And your 6.23 inches for March is just a smidgen under half our YEARLY total.

Yikes!
