Here's a picture, in case you don't believe me:
That's the street in front of my house, plus about five feet of my yard, completely underwater. The sun was out this morning, until about 11:30AM or so. It started raining about 1:30, and it is now 4:00 in the afternoon. That's how much rain has fallen on us in a couple of hours.
Good thing I mowed the lawn, right? If only I hadn't planned on eating out tonight... I have steaks, everything will be OK.
