Flooding

Some of you might have seen this on the news. We had torrential rain and floods, and it's not finished yet. They're predicting double what we've gotten already in the next 24 hours. One of my knitting friends had over 4' of water rush into her house in 45 minutes. Her appliances and furniture were floating, and everything will be ruined downstairs. Really bad! I'm OK.
