husband had to work this morning, and came home to tell me that some streets in our subdivision were under water. So we did what normal red-blooded Americans do in such situations-we went out driving around to see the water :crazy1: . This area NEVER floods. We've lived here, or family members have lived here, for nearly fifty years. I've never seen the streets under water. That is, until now. Some streets are now impassible. I just saw on the website for our local news that our county is under a Level I emergency-motorists are to stay off the roads until things improve, which might be a while, since it's still raining right now. (by the way, we didn't know all this when we went sightseeing). I don't remember this ever happening due to water. Snow, yes. Water, no. I'm just awed at the amount of water that has fallen. Now I just have to keep difficult child off the road until the weather improves. He's dumb enough to go driving through all of this high water, no matter how many times we tell him it's dangerous. Actually, telling him it's dangerous is likely to make him more apt to do it. I hope everyone else is staying dry. I guess we'll be homebound for a while.
