    I heard during the next election cycle the BoS want to tax you an effective rate of $2 for every inch of rain over 1 inch within a 24 hours.
    This will only include people that pay their “fair share”. If you don’t currently pay taxes please disregard.
    Sorry, its raining and I wanted to wrap the tax vote into the weather. 🙂
