Wettest month of May in history here in North Texas....wow. Looking forward to Vipering in what promises to be the most humid and mosquito ridden summer in history.

We've gotten 35 trillion gallons of water dropped on us in the month of May. That's enough water to give every person in the world an eight ounce glass of water daily for 10,000 years. That's enough water to fill 200 of California's largest surface reservoirs three times over. Enough water to cover the entire state of Texas with eight inches of water. Just a few fun facts off the news....

Damn.... that's a crazy statistic. I wonder why California doesn't build a big pipeline north to Alaska or to Texas or whatever.

My parents live on the Rainbow river and that spring pumps out 500 million gallons of water PER DAY. It's really an amazing and beautiful river. The water is crystal clear fresh water and 72 degrees year round.

If you had a cylinder the shape and size of Manhatten, it still wouldn't touch the sides of RA's ********....just kidding. Anyway, if you had this cylinder, and put in 35 trillion gallons of water, the city of Manhatten would be over 2,000 ft. underwater.

I once was in a rain in Africa that was so hard it covered the earth with 8 inches of water...there were rivers overnight where there were none...there were fish in the rivers which came out of the earth, buried for years waiting for the river to return..then the dragon flies came out the next day so thick just a meter above your head you could not see the sun. The sound of frogs and insects was literally frightening. This was the headwaters to the Nile River... You ain't seen nothin compared to what Mother Nature can do. Just sayin. ;)

Yes, we need pictures. I have been sending $14.95 a month to the Feed The Children Fund in Africa for many years now. I adopted two children and its been quite fulfilling watching them grow.

Come to Central Florida. Hasn't rained here hardly at all.

Boy that's about to change! We got 5" in just a few hours time in central Florida just 3 days ago! The Rainbow River truly is a beautiful section of the state.Sounds like we need to plan a Viper event up that way!

WANTED, I'm going to bet the type of work you do for a living does not require reading comprehension or grammar. Humor ain't your strong point either.

haha, but you photo well. By the way you didn't answer my question. In your pic which one of the two of you are you? waiting :dunno:

Last Thursday here in PA I went and saw Fast & Furious 7. Thought it only appropriate to take the viper (unlike most folks on this board, I drive mine every opportunity I get). Checked the weather forecast and there was a 0% chance of rain until like 3 AM. After the movie, as my wife and I are walking to the car, the rain slowly started. We get in and the floodgates of heaven opened up on us! It was a torrential downpour. Unbelievable. Was actually difficult getting home. She was nice and clean but now she is my dirty girl again.;)

Lol. I drive every chance I get as well. My girlfriend and I went and saw insidious 3 last Tuesday. On our way out was a nice warm night so we dropped the top, sure enough half way home it started raining! Nothing crazy but steady rain.... It was fine the faster we drove, but when we finally came to a stop it got wet. Damn out of season rain!
