*It's Me

We have some flooding, and expect more...

Fearful that Coralville Lake's level may reach its 712-foot spillway level for only the second time in history, Corps of Engineers officials have increased the rate at which it lets water out of the man-made, flood-control reservoir north of here. That will mean some low lying flooding along the Iowa River in Iowa City and Coralville.
(emphasis mine)

And the first time it happened?

The last time I lived here.

They're predicting it will happen again later this month.

My cousin's husband blames me for bringing rain every time I go to Wisconsin, so I'll take the heat for this too.

Come to Georgia, please! We're in a drought.

If you're really a rainmaker I bet I could find a local politician who'd hire you as a consultant.
