Flood!

The rain started just before 3. Stopped around 7. Almost lost my work car. Lot of people a block farther down did lose their cars.

Kayak launched.
Other neighborhoods are a lot worse. My old neighbors say it hasn't been like this since Katrina.

Now it's night time, and the water hasn't gone down an inch.

But I got power, and I'm locked and loaded. Dogs and I are safe.
