We got hit really hard yesterday afternoon starting about 4:30.......the rain was coming down in buckets.........we were watching out the window at work, and the yard was flooding, the streets were flooding, etc. I told my coworker Debi I was leaving before it got worse. She wanted to wait it out so she stayed. I had to walk through 4 inchs of water just to get to my car. I pulled out onto our road, and it of course was bumper to bumper traffic. They say never to drive through a big puddle because you don't know how deep it is, the current could sweep your car away, etc. That is all true but the line of traffic I was in was going, so I had to keep going with it. I went through some REALLY deep puddles and was holding my breath the whole time that my car wouldn't stall. What a mess it would have been and the traffic jam I would have caused it it had. We all inched along about 5 miles an hour. My normal 20 minute ride home took over an hour, but I made it. The rains can really be wicked at time. My basement is flooded. Then the weather girl says we could get hit again today.........Gosh I hope not.
