I really wish it would rain here, it hasn't for at least 6 months. We have forest/desert fires raging all around, completely encircling the city, and are having a serious drought. All of the lakes (man-made of course) are about 30 feet low. Even the cacti are dying!!! If we don't get rain soon, we could have some serious problems.

It continued on here in the middle of the night. All the Irish channels are gone and the national radio stations are gone too, only the local ones are working. There are blackouts all over the country.

I saw a drought once. It was funny to see people playing golf on grass that is so brown it looks like desert sand.

We never seem to get storms, since we're on the north eastern coast of england, but instead of storms, we get cold!

It's only dangerous if you don't have an uninterruptable power supply. Even a surge protector isn't good enough.

Here in Tennessee its as dry as a desert. Hadn't rained in 2 or 3 weeks, at least not substantially, and it is so hot!! 90F and it is only the 3rd of June! I am dreading July and August! And the only lightning we see is heat lightning!

We're supposed to have Sunny skys and above 30C this week. To think that about 2 or 3 months ago it was snowing. LOL!
