From the Unbelievable File

According to recent reports on The Weather Channel, a small island town off the coast of Mexico, not far from Cancun, has received over 65 inches of rain in the past 48 hours from Hurricane Wilma.

65 inches of rain! That's more than 5 feet of rain. My wife is barely 65 inches tall. Actually, she's 64 inches tall.

In comparison, New York City receives roughly 32 inches of rain per year. That's 2 years worth of rain in a two-day span.

Oh, and as if that wasn't unbelievable enough, there's a new Tropical Storm forming in the Caribean Sea. They ran out of names so it's called "Alpha". This is a record for named-storms in a single year. They've never gone through the alphabet (not all letters are used, obviously) and, now with their 22nd named storm, they're onto the Greek alphabet.

Rumor has it that the potential 75th named storm, Lambda Lambda Lambda, will not bring torrential rains but will shower those in its path with pocket protectors, glasses, and asexual robots.
