Same in Seminole County. I was actually hoping for a bit more rain since we need it so badly to bring water levels up in some of the lakes.

I just called my brother in Palm Coast and he said it isn't/hasn't been bad there (yet).

I just checked the radar loop for that area and it does look like the rain intensity has increased since I last checked at around 7pm. If you are in a flood prone area, good luck!

I'm wondering how many bushels are not going to be harvestable/edible due to all of the rain making mud out of fields that are ready to be harvested.

Don't think that there is any citrus that is in season, but citrus trees don't grow well in wet areas so there should be little to no damage for citrus farmers.

The sod farm down the road looks like a big lake. All of it is under water, but sod is grown on old swamp land. Less need for irrigation i guess.

We need rain badly in Ohio or the yields are going to suck. Early in the year, we started out with too much rain and now it's drier than a popcorn fart.

On another note, I spoke to my bro in Palm Coast again today and he said that everything is good there. Evidently the heavy rain missed them.

At the beginning of the summer the mosquitoes were so bad you could not sit outside in the evening. Now there is not one of them flying around.

I think I like it dry more,

Ah yes, clouds and silver linings, or is it lack of clouds and silver linings? smile
