Angry The Rain Needs To Stop

Ok I live in Indiana and it rained everyday in april so yesterday being a good day I decided to wash my car I looked at the weather for the following day and it said it had a 20% chance of rain so I was like it probably wont rain. Well when I woke up it was raining and I was like are you kidding me!?!?!? Seems like my car is clean for like an hour then it rains I hope it stops soon!!!!

Same here, I live in NY, 40 miles from the PA line on the Lake Erie side. We had the Coldest Wettest Spring on Recors and it's Rained the first 4 days of May too. Woodstoves been going and tonight there's a chance of SNOW on the higher elevations with temps here around 30 degrees.
I've had My Stang out a total of about a Hour one day where it was actually nice out. They say tomorrow will be SUNNY with temps in the low 60's and then finally more 60's but also more Rain. We just cant catch a break here. I work outside so this is Killing me all around.

its been the same here, only the april showers have washed away the may flowers in massive floods. million $ houses on the property where i work that were on the river have had to be evacuated, and have been destroyed.

there has been a day here or there in the last month, and i washed the car too, but same story. ron, we been running the stove at night too (30`s)but this last week had some warm days( near 70`s). these next few days are only chances of rain but look good so i took a couple days off

the Army Corps of Engineers blew up levees on purpose just give relief to the swelling rivers. I heard that also wiped out millions in farmland.

ya, that was on the news here last night. the farmers are devastated, but i guess it saved a town in illinois. that was on the other side of the state. the dam that the corps run here couldnt hold any more so they had to wipe out a bunch of houses down stream, and are running record amounts of water through the dam. this last month has not been good. today the sun is shining, gonna detail the car i think, might last a couple days

Been raining for about a month straight here in Central Ohio also. This used to be a swamp in marshland 100 years ago so when it rains it gets crazy soggy, but luckily besides an overgrowth in the yard since I can't mow it hasn't flooded yet, but southern ohio is not doing to well.

My Stang is Detailed and ready to go, first thing is getting the New Duals on 95% of the Yards in My Town have yet to be Mowed, most are 6" or higher, there's just been no relief in the Rain for anyone to get anything done, it looks pretty shabby around here.
Mike My Stoves still Burning, and like I said tonight into the 30's and lower. It's seems so weird to have it light out untill 8:30 and still be so Cold and Gloomy

It is a commonly known fact that washing and/or detailing your vehicles is an effective rain dance

San Diego's a great place! Love visiting Coronado. Haven't taken the 'stang out there yet but I bet it's great driving out there.
