Haven't seen it rain like this in months!

Got a leak in my roof, back part of the house was somewhat flooded, not fun cleaning it up.

:lol:

What's it like in your part of the world? If you say sunny and hot, I will personally hurt you. :D

It's raining non-stop over here on the Island. I like it though. The house is very cozy, got my radiant heater on and just looking at the rain pelt against my windows til the game begins. :D

Well...it's cold, it's windy, and it's going to snow.

This morning driving to school, I kept seeing all these cars with snow on them....NOT SO COOL!

I'm guessing there was a nice little flurry/wet snow last night after I had gone to bed...GRRRRRRRRR

Ahhh yessss. Rain. Well, at least the dog isn't trying to guilt me into going out! Sure makes me appreciate the almost three solid months of sun we had over the summer.

Good luck with that leak. Went through the same thing a couple of years ago, but a bit of that roofing tar, and it's been great ever since.

Amen. We've been long overdue for a grey, cold West Coast rainstorm.

Ahhhh, tis still pouring rain out over here on the Island; hasn't let up for a second since last night. Nothing beats the freshness of the cool westcoast weather. I hope it rains for two more days.

Who out there DOESN'T enjoy falling asleep to the rain... probably not many.

I love the rain. :D :bow: :handclap:

Except for the flooded streets/parking lots, I love the rain...especially when it's raining as much as this. It's too cold to do anything outside, so what's the point of sunshine at this time of year?

What part of the Island do you live. I have friends and relatives all over the Island.
Sounds like you guys are really getting a big rainfall, other than damage, I can't say I feel sorry for you guys. Where I am from Prince Rupert, we get a lot more rain than you.

I biked home in the downpour. It was exhilarating. I passed a jogger and another cyclist and we all had these "I can't believe I'm doing this" type grins.

Well, I love the rain. Providing it isn't this ridiculous for much longer, my basement's getting wet too. But I was kinda worried this summer when the city was considering water restrictions. I want that reservoir FULL.

Well, the downpour's finally stopped here in Richmond. Wow. Vancouver weather is back with a vengeance.

Yeah, I had to kind of laugh at how PC the water police were getting. Not that conserving water is bad... but did anyone really believe it wasn't going to rain serious amounts in October... this was Vancouver after all. heh. There were all these people running around telling on their neighbours for watering their gardens 10 minutes longer than was allowable.

Well, despite the rain, I still managed to get a speeding ticket on Nordel way today.. 87 in a 60 zone in the rain. Just my luck, I got the one cop in all of Surrey who was actually doing his job. ;)

Westwood Plateau? Only thing you have to worry about is a leaky roof.
I live near the Coquitlam River and I'm hoping it doesn't overflow. However, White Rock is getting shafted...that municipality has a pretty bad pass-the-buck government. Sewers are getting backed up EVERYWHERE and residents were having to get their own pumps to pump out sewage from getting into their homes.
But for now, the clouds are passing to the north of the Lower Mainland. Weatherman says it's coming back for the week though. And for some reason, the resevoirs STILL aren't full. Yikes...pretty damn dry summer it was...

Damn ... it's snowing here right now

A lot of wind and it's getting colder and colder for each day

I hate this period between autumn and winter - it takes like 2 months for the snow to really settle down and the temperature to be freezing

I just hate it ...... :mad:
