    Up here in the Northeast we have been getting rain since Friday and today will make 7 days of rain with more to come before it ends sometime Sunday. Looks like the drought is over. Its starting to get depressing up here since the sun hasn't shown in over a week now. So what are fellow Northeasters doing to keep from going nuts.

    I'm jealous. I have some assignments to write and there's nothing better than having rain on a tin roof as I tap away on my Mac for hours on end.

    October tends to be a really nice month with abundant sunshine, but this October is an aberration. Once I get home from work, I watch shows I have taped and avoid looking out any windows.

    It also helps a bit to think about the Yankees losing out in CA. The Emperor Steinbrenner must be doing a slow burn.

    In the Northeast US (namely New England), it's gray and/or snowing from December to April, you get no sympathy :p

    As for me, I like the rain, except when it's here for 8 days straight.

    personally I'm beginning to envy those rainy places... out here Indian Summer's going full speed ahead. Hopefully it will cool down in a couple of weeks...

    Hahah! Touché. People drive like friggin idiots when it rains in SF and environs. It's like everyone reverts to student-driver-first-time-in-the-car mode, especially on the west end of the Bay Bridge and through the 680 mess in Oakland.

    Having lived in Vancouver for 7 weeks now, today was time for the rain to start, it seems. I was miserably wet and cold all day! But after growing up in California, it's refreshing. I might not feel the same way by next year ;).

    Cold, wet, and nasty in New York City.

    It was a pain in the ass getting out of bed and forcing myself to class this morning ;).

    Man, you really need to learn how type!
    Typing is much faster then tapping, and would save you those hours :D :p ;)

    You can stand outside in the cold and wet, that will wake you right up! Well it does for me in Minnesota :)

    Driving with the sunroof open in January works wonders too :)

    No! I'm coming to Bay Area in a couple of weeks and after the weather in London, I'd like some Indian Summer!

    Fire your travel agent! November is when all that latent cold and fog and rain rolls in for the winter (more so than their matching summer counterparts). You learn to love it though, if you live there long enough. With any luck, it'll stay around 10-12 degrees C, or if you're really special, there will be a freakish warm snap and you might see 17 or 18 degrees!

    I've been luckier the years I've been in early November than the years I've gone in early October so I'll keep my fingers crossed and take my chances! ;) Even if it is 10-12 and foggy, it's still not going to be any worse than London will be then! And I have a week in Vegas too so it's only the first week in November that I really want it to hold off.

    Yes another minging day in London again... there's something quite therapeutic about sitting by the window watching the rain though.

    *dietcokevanilla feels all smug about the fact that she works from home*

    ^^but just to make you guys feel better - i did have to go into the office yesterday, feeling poorly, and got soaked on the way home... which has done wonders for my cold :rolleyes: :(

    I know!!!

    Its been raining here for almost a week!

    I surprised my basement hasn't started to flood.

    Oh man, if this was a snow storm, we would have had like 5ft of snow.

    Just pretend that you live in Seattle and go to Starbucks and get a latte.
    Get a picture of the Space Needle and tape it to your window.

    I don't think we've seen the sun here for a week, either. That coupled with the later sunrise is making it harder and hard to crawl out of bed in the morning.

    If it weren't for two Hurricanes, we wouldn't have had rain for over two months. Still in the 80's during the day here. Love the sun, worship the sun!

    Absolutely, its the same here in Atlanta, where saturday (fortunately) has been the only day in the past 7-8 that it hasn't rained or drizzled constantly (which is just as bad). Last friday I commuted 5 hours (there and back) to work 7. :mad:

    I heard a joke once, which I will share with you all.

    Atlanta [or your city of choice] traffic is a lot like a flower. Just add water and watch it grow.
