Our lovely Midwest city broke a 134 year record for rainfall yesterday. I think we got 6 inches in 24 hours or something like that. Enough so that our front yard looked like a pond and our basement got water in it for the first time ever. Tornadoes passed just north and south of us.
Schools were closed in all the surrounding counties, but ours seemed to escape the worst of it.
The good news is that I see a potential solution to these high gas prices. With all of this rain, the mosquitoes will soon be big enough to ride. Either that or we'll all just canoe down the streets. Yesterday, we could have.
