A Rainfall Of Science Fiction Proportion

As some of you may be aware, Florida has had record breaking amounts of rainfall, in the double digit numbers of inches. I took a few pictures of my yard, with the doggies happily romping in "Lake Smurf". About 7-8 inches of water, and as much under the house foundation. A sump pump has been slowly draining this over the last few days.

 

Never before seen rainfall amounts in my 35 years here by the coast, can you say "Global Warmimg"?

 

I knew that you could. :smiley19:

 

This has kept us quite busy, and model building work is at a halt while we clean up the mess. When the new version of the standard Jupiter 2 Space Saucer, is finally completed, I will post final images here. Providing we don't float away first!

 

Forecasts indicate more rain today and tomorrow, could it be "the shape of things to come", as geologist/meteorologist/futurist, Micheal Scallion, predicted, some years ago? He predicted worldwide coastal changes, and that Florida would recede dramatically, and become a chain of Islands. Bummer.......... :smiley22:

Careful! You might get tagged as a lunatic left-wing socialist for even hinting that human activity might somehow have lead real consequences on our surrounding environment.... It's a Trap!!!!
