One winter in the mid 90's it rained 60 inches in 120 days. It rained on 90 of those days. There was never the big gully washer. Just always wet. No big flood but the river was either sitting at the top of banks or just over the top.I've always said "I hope I live somewhere that I could truthfully say "I wish it would stop raining."
After reading your post webfoot, maybe I will change my mind.
