We're right at the north edge of that storm here. So we get the clouds and crappy weather, but no heavy rain or severe storms.

goodbye JUST completed */c probe...

the fdr was torn half apart, he was getting his t88 turbo rebuilt and setting it up for nitrous and the motor was full of water

the probe was parked in the deeper corner of the garage and the water was up to the mirrors... :(

I'm glad that my "Oversize" garage is seperate from the house, and the highest point of the driveway. Anything remotely valuable parked in there should be relatively safe

My wife and I actually did get flooded out in the lower level of our bi-level. It'* been a nightmare since we discovered it Saturday night. The sump pump got smoked due to a brown out, then combined with the rain, the water just started coming in under the footings. It'* been a lot of work removing carpeting, pool table, etc., but it'll be nice when it'* all done with the new carpeting that the insurance company had to pay for!!!!
