If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is "God is crying." And if he asks why God is crying, another cute thing to tell him is "Probably because of something you did." --Jack Handey

It's rained so much here in Middle TN. There's a photography studio here in town, and it's got a pond right next to it with a man-made island in the middle. They'll use it for the occasional picture, I reckon. Well, it's decent gauge for me as to how much it's raining....

Usually, there are two cinder blocks showing above the water line. If one's covered, it's rained a bit. If two are covered, it's rained a lot. The whole island was covered, grass and all, today, and the water was coming out of the banks of the pod on the outer banks, and creeping up toward the main building.

So that, along with Morgan Freeman yelling to Christian Slater outside my apartment that "We just want the money!", will tell you that it's been raining pretty good around these parts....
