1. With all this rain, I don't have to water the gardens at 6:00a.m., while fighting mosquitoes and black flies.
2. A very green lawn, in spite of the fact that we ignore and neglect it. Again, thanks to the rain.
3. Percoset, for kids recovering from wisdom teeth extractions.
4. Tanning salons, for those of us who would otherwise wither and die with such a LONG lack of sunshine.
5. Cool Maine summer weather, when much of the country is under heat advisories.
