We want the rain, this is not what what we are upset about. The problem is, we get deluges (often with hailstones) that we can't cope with. Netanya had a mini-tornado. Our badly planned sewers back up, our water stagnates in the streets, or in my neighbourhood, it runs down the hill to the sea and floods all the houses and fills indoor apartment parking areas like a swimming pool. Our wires get entangled in untended trees which always break off in severe weather. The rain itself : always wanted - always needed.
