I was going to fly down to Florida and I was thinking about changing the date and they told me it was going to cost the amount of the new ticket + $25.
I asked the lady why I didn't buy that plane ticket for the new day and keep both plane rides and not pay the extra $25

We always kinda chuckle when people say it pours somewhere. It's not uncommon for us to get an inch an hour for a couple hours here. I've learned that most of this country's rain isn't like ours.

We were there for the bad one for you guys.

It was strange. Dreary for a couple days. Never stopped raining and we kept waiting for it to really come down but would go a little heavier a little lighter and drizzled forever.

If it rains for days on end without stop here we're measuring in feet. Ours just opens up and pours buckets and then is done. Couple months ago I was texting with Jaws and we had 8" from 3am to 10am. It was stupid heavy for a looooong time for us. We get normal rains in winter but our summer stuff isn't like anywhere else Ive been.

When we were there a few years ago it came down in buckets. Think like almost every afternoon.

Can't be that big yellow ball of fire we see in the sky that drives the climate, it's CO2 and man. Doesn't matter that the moon and Mars' temps have risen, it's only Earth being killed by the bad humans.

I think I read an article that the left is blaming man for solar system climate change now. Not kidding.

I've never been there, my Dad has though and told me it's about like it is here at times. He said it actually rained for longer on average there too started slow would pick up, then would slow back down.

Ours sky opens up, rains an inch, stops. The lightning here is pretty incredible too. Anyone who's been here for 30 years or more has probably had some type of run in with lightning striking something they own. It's a scary but beautiful. By August you start yelling back at the lightning.

Of course they are. It's mans fault for everything. Especially the right leaners.

Luckily most polar bears live in Canada, which has socialized medicine. So I could get a new, better elbow for free with no waiting in line or anything.
