Sorry to hear bout the damage. You know us...we want pics. (If it ever stops raining)

Been raining here ever since Pat drove the Alienmobile into the driveway. Got at least another week of it coming.

Half of a drive to look over a car for Rob was in heavy rains. Glad I have fresh tires on... they stick great in this stuff.

For the most part..the flooding isn't as bad as it could be.

There are some isolated spots where the media is blowing things out of proportion to up their ratings...

How large was the hail? we had hail here but my car seems to be ok... just wondering how big it has to be before it does damage.
