|The storm approached from the southwest.|
|And it started to rain. It rained all afternoon and evening and most of the night.|
Today Jim and I bailed about 5 good-sized buckets of water out of Mom's basement. This afternoon I visited with my grade school/junior high/high school friend (and Wellington High School Class of 1969 Salutatorian) Sally. We hadn't seen each other for two years so we had a lot to catch up on. While I was at Sally's the second big rainstorm in two days started; it rained so hard there was a river of water going down each side of Sally's street. And,her power went out. Since we had a lot to talk about (and her husband, Mike, kept lighting oil lamps and had picked up lunch for us before the rain started) we were fine. Jim was worried, of course, and texted me this message: "U OK? Still got power here but running out of beer."
