We have gotten ten inches of rain since midnight...After getting about half way to class this morning I turned around and had the boyfriend drive me instead. My mustang would have surely gotten water logged. As my typical luck, I was in class for ten minutes and the administrators came in and informed us that they had to cut the power in the art building because the electrical stuff is in the basement, and was flooding...
Here are some pictures I got on our way back home. We had to detour a few times so we got to see a lot of really crazy places...
The maxima is stopped. The water here was more than knee deep:
This is just outside of our neighborhood. It's hard to see, but by the center median there are two cars that are almost completely submerged:
This is in our neighborhood, just two blocks from our house. Thankfully our street is higher, but I am really worried about the people who live in those houses.
It is sheer chaos around here. So many cars are stranded, and rescue crews are having to use boats to get people to safety.
It is supposed to continue raining for a few hours...and then storm again this evening. eek.
