We had hours of rain today. On the news tonight, there are so many stories about flooding of the freeways, stalled cars, rescues, people in boats. I had some minor basement flooding at home, which has been sopped up. There is talk about calling off work for tomorrow, encouraging people to stay off the roads. I wonder how my really old building is faring. They're call it a 150 year flood. We've escaped many storms; no hurricanes, few tornadoes, no drought or earthquakes. This is usually a very safe place to reside. So every place has it's troubles. Now ours.
