Flooding

We had a LONG storm Monday night into Tuesday. There was a normal amount of thunder and lightning, but it wasn’t severe. The rain coming down was massive though. We watched as our street flooded for about 30 minutes and then go back down. We saw our backyard become a pool and the next day it was fine – although too wet to let the kids go back there and play.

The schools called at 5:55am. I jumped out of bed because a phone call at that hour isn’t usually good. But, when I realized what it was, I was impressed that they actually call you and tell you that school has been cancelled. They didn’t do that in the other states we have lived in.

The rain hit an area about 15-20 minutes away even harder. Flooded high and got in houses. We are very thankful that it wasn’t that bad in our neighborhood.
