Ready Thine Ark

We’ve gotten no less than ten inches of rain in the past 24 hours. This is on top of all the snow we got the two days previously (which has since melted). As a result we have standing water almost all the way around the house and our garage (just above ground level) is now starting to flood. Himself has moved all the important boxes out of the area and we’re just crossing our fingers that the rain lets up a bit.

In the meantime we’re having fun watching the county roads closed list and the photos of morons who drove their cars into water that was three or four feet deep. It never fails, there are at least a half-dozen of them each year.

    Keeping my fingers crossed that you’re escaping the flooding!

    I haven’t spoken to my parents – they were supposed to call yesterday evening but I suspect their phone lines or power may be down, as they didn’t call and it looks like Shoreline’s been pretty hard hit by flooding. Their house should be fine, as it’s on a hill…but I’m worried anyway!

    Do you think that it’s the same half-dozen morons every year? It seems like there’s one blue-gray compact sedan that they must have as stock footage getting into some giant puddle…

    Mr. Man and I went puddle jumping at 1am this morning. In BIG BIG puddles. That was fun 🙂
