A bunch of years ago, torrential rains caused terrible local flooding. Over time, the weather was drier, and just a few years ago, we suffered a drought, which was bad enough to cause old trees to die.
Over the last few weeks, we've had more than our share of rain. If this continues, major flooding can become a reality. The soil is saturated, outfalls are full, and even moderate rain will cause problems.
That's one thing about my part of the world: If you don't like the weather, wait a day, and see if you like the change. That, and be careful what you wish for.
