    I used to not take those "Flash Flood" warnings very seriously when they ran across the TV. We had it REALLY bad here the other night. 5.5 inches of rain in 4 hours! Some rain guages in town actually hit the 7 inch mark!

    So many lawns are GONE so my mowing will be slowing down for the year. The good news is, their mulch, plants, and small trees are gone too!!! The bad news is, this flood killed some folks around here, and a lot don't have a home to go back to.

    Kinda makes me realize how lucky I am....

    Check out this article.

  2. Heard you had it bad out there. One of my customers works for FEMA. His wife said he flew to Ohio yesterday.
