Geez!!!


OK, before anyone starts the critique, this is my first video...
It is never going to stop raining.
The lakes and rivers are so swollen, they are cresting. The waters are just about to flow over spillways at several dams in the state.
Girl Scout camps are under water in Northeast Texas at Lake Texoma (at the border of Oklahoma and Texas).
It has rained for about three months, it's unbelievable.
The mosquitoes are horrible.
The fleas are horrible (poor Niki, I found a flea on her the other day. She hasn't had a flea since we found her in the park seven years ago).
The sun hasn't been out in like three months.
Some broadcaster asked on radio today, which is worse, drought and oppressive heat, or endless rain and awful mosquitoes?
As I sit here applying Afterbite for the mosquito bites I got at a fireworks display on the Fourth of July, I am thinking oppressive heat and drought isn't that bad.

P.S.: A special thanks to Andy Isaac, who walked me through uploading this video. Google is really the way to go.

Have you started building that Ark? Girl scouts underwater, where are they storing the cookies?

for a first video, thats pretty good...

and google video has a much faster upload time than youtube...I actually dont understand why people dont use it more because essentially, its the same thing...

and mosquitoes are awful...I would easily take drought and oppressive heat over living in the jungle(oops, I meant Liz's yard).

I despise mosquitos. They make having fun outdoors, not so fun. I was trying to run last night and a variety of bugs including mosquitos were attacking me. Yuck. Your tropical rainforest is nice Liz. Drought is bad too. Both extremes mess everything up, especially the farmers!!
