We are in the middle of a small heat-wave here in Winnipeg. Supposed to be in the 30s (Celcius) all week. No rain in the forecast either. My wife is on holidays this week and will no doubt spend a few days at the beach with my youngest son. Sigh - here I am at work twiddling my fingers while I wait for other departments to come and do some work on my desk.
Small indeed. Have you seen what Arizona is getting? I believe they hit 48.7 or 48.9 on the weekend. I was in Tempe in early August for 10 days or so about 6 years ago. Didn't have one day cooler than 45 the entire time. Talk about brutal.

I loved days like that (as few as they were). It gave me time to work on little pet projects. The connections database/GUI came out of that down time.
We had one big big rain storm an hour ago-- lots of flooding everywhere (not mhy home though). I was out driing in it and water up almost to the top of the tires of my car. Just got the internet back a few minutes ago. I think vegaseat sent his rain over to my direction (I'm a few hundred miles east of Las Vagas)

It was sunny during the day but started to rain around the evening 6pm if I remember. Rain is good it's been so humid the whole week.
Yes rain is good because I don't have to watter the gras. But this is a Noah-like rainstorm! The ground is already so wet that it cannot absorb any more water so it all just runs into ditches and floods the streets.

I assume the ground means the concrete sidewalk not your front yard. I'm from the city and most neighbourhood doesn't have a front yard/porch and the concrete sidewalk it does absorb water but not a lot then like what you mention it does runs into the ditches and flood the streets. It does flood the corner of each street because something got stuck in the sewage then it will be flood.
If there was a Noah-like rainstorm. It's been so humid. I will take that.

No, "ground" means "dirt" -- Mother Earth. This rain was so hard and lasted so long the city sewer system couldn't handle all the water. And in the country the farm fields were all flooded and the deep ditches where overflowing with water.
The first 6 months where cold and wet.
Currently it has'nt been raining here for some 14 days. It is 16 PM and sunny 30°C. Hope it stays like that until december! A shower now and then for the plants and herbs may be acceptable know and then...
It has been raining for past 3-4 days in north-west part of UK, I love it because it was around 30C for more than 2 weeks probably. Got tired of such hot weather, but now its really nice. Still warm but raining, no sun rays infiltrating the room early in the mornings and violating your privacy lol xD
