We have had just under 100mm of rain in the past 36 hours. (south east of us have received almost 200mm!) Parts of the city are flooded, several communities around us have declared states of emergency and the rain is still coming down!
One of the offices I work in had a small lake in it last night and was trying to make a come back this morning. Our basement has sprung a couple leaks in the foundation and we found pooling in two of the corners. My sister-in-law’s basement has water coming up from the middle of the floor. The school where my mother-in-law works had some major roof leaks yesterday. We helped clear our the music room out so that band equipment wouldn’t get ruined and the paper in a paper storage closet was almost a complete write off.
We aren’t doing to bad on the whole…I can’t even imagine what others in and out of town are dealing with. The good news: It’s supposed to stop later this evening…not before another almost 30 mm of rain is expected….yikes! I’m so glad the weather channel is saying sun and hot for the next few days starting tomorrow afternoon. We need the time to dry out!
Well, time for me to go find my hip waiters and canoe….stay dry and safe!
