While I am completely against the "rain tax" anyway, I especially resent it for me and the rest of the homeowners like me ("Churches seek break on city stormwater fee," June 12).

The rain that falls on my house, garage and driveway does not go into a storm drain or a creek that feeds the Chesapeake Bay. There are no such releases for this water where I live. No storm drains, and the nearest creek is a quarter-mile away. Instead, it is absorbed into the ground, a natural cycle. This is how nature intended it.

I and the other homeowners like me should be exempt from this absurd tax.
