PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. - There were times on Wednesday where it seemed the rain would never stop.


"As far as the weather is concerned, that's Florida for you," says Bernard Spinelli, who was attending an event at the Palm Beach County Equestrian Center in Wellington.
 
But for him and his wife Jackie, even as longtime Floridians, Wednesday's weather was for the birds.


"The rain is good for the grass and the trees and so forth, but it's a little much today," Bernard says. 
 
It was also a bit much for the Equestrian Center, which canceled its shows for today for safety reasons. 
 
While the rain left the center soggy, the drainage system around the competition rings kept them relatively dry. 

"We'll be focused on making sure the show is back on track tomorrow morning as scheduled, and through the rest of the week," says Carly Weilminster, a spokesperson for the equestrian center.
 
The Spinelli's say they were disappointed that they missed the show - but they're making the best of it.

 In parts of West Palm Beach and Lake Worth, flooded streets had folks singing a different tune. 
 
Cars cut through floodwaters on Haverhill Road in West Palm Beach - bright orange signs reminding drivers of the hazards ahead. 
 
Meanwhile Parts of Lake Worth lived up to its name, as large puddles of water covered area streets. 
 
"Every time it rains this bad I'm pumping water," one resident told us.

In some areas, the water on Helyn Road reached halfway up our boots.
 
That resident tells us long after the rain stops, he'll still be trying to dry things out. 
 
"While everyone else is fine, I'll be stuck pumping water for 3 to 4 days."
