I'll take the rain.. no worries. Send the storms my way..

BTW Dan..the other day I encountered construction on the way to a normal stop. WTF seems like they are tearing up a lot of road? Asked the locals what was going on. They hung their heads and grumbled a single word .... "roundabout" Instantly I thought of ya.

We have been in a drought all summer. My creek has dried up for only the second time since I've been here.

All we have here is roundabouts. You go roundabout and roundabout this mountain, and roundabout that mountain to get anywhere.

Getting it hard just to the south of me. A tornado is ripping up everything, and I hear they just got 6 inches, yes, I said 6 inches of rain in 45 minuets.

Just now getting caught up on friends in the area. 7" of rain and still coming down. The interstate is closed, it'* under water. One friend had to go back to work because she can't get home, she'* stuck for the night, another is hiding in the basement, tornado ripping threw. Milwaukee is getting washed away with no end in site.



Edit, a sink hole just formed and swallowed up Escalade.
