I live in the Texas/Louisiana region currently receiving FAR too much rain. We have had rain for over two weeks every day. Some days we get over a 1/2 foot deluge. After going thru both Katrina and Rita, we are worried about more rain. Rivers are over their banks in some areas. The option of a controlled flood release isn’t an option for some. I actually had to pull over on high ground so that I could swim to my doctor’s appointment this morning. Then a police cruiser noticing my dilemma in finding a safe way home had to push my car down the road a piece. My neighborhood floods easily, and the powerlines over head often go down.
It is merely sprinkling now, but the threat of more rain tomorrow is possible. And my dog reeks of wet-dog cologne.
We sure could use a break right now.
