What a difference a continent makes. We're just watching the roads dissolve here under the pressure of springs and runoff.

@Dagney - thanks for the update! Technically, it isn't in a Flood plain, but I haven't been in that apartment very long, so I got nervous. No worries on driving by. What's done is done. I'll deal with it when I get in on Saturday. For all my worry and prep, I'm sure that nothing has happened. Thanks for the offer, though!
You live in Kdale?? I lived there for like 8 years before going to Brier Creek!! We should definitely get some Cellar Coffee. Can I drink tea? I saw the flooding on news apps and from people on facebook. My gym is in Durham, so I probably would've encountered some.

I'm completely dumbfounded that the Eno River State Park is going to be open today when yesterday, the river was flooding. A ranger there said all the trails were underwater, too.

I cancelled my camping trip simply because I wouldn't be in town and I need to make up a half day of travel next Monday.

So, yay rain!
Damn. I thought it rained everyday from 9 - 2 in Seattle. You guys must've been desiccated.

I think the DC area and Seattle swapped summers.

It's funny, because the grass has never been so lush, but there is never a chance to mow it.

Nor is there ever a chance for the pest control guys to treat the yard for the influx of ants caused by the rain...

It's like you have been to my kitchen.

I went to the local hardware store Tuesday to buy some Terro, and the shelves were bare.

I did have some Permetherin for treating my camping gear, and I sprayed that between the door and storm door. I think it's working.

So, for all my prep - nothing happened No flooding, not even a power outage. My modem decided to die, but that's unrelated
