Flash Flooding - more on the way!

We have gotten 4.62 inches of rain since 9:30 am and 2.66" in about a 6 minute period. DH took pictures of the flooding in the backyard. The city has requested all unnecessary traffic be stopped, and ordered evacuation along Mill Creek in Belle Valley. See photos here We definitely had our share of water today.

Although, "The Weather Channel" is totally in the dark about what is happening here, they are forecasting scattered thundershowers today and tomorrow.At this point, we are safe, but the garden is mostly washed out. Hopefully, the seedlings are strong enough to stay put.
On another note, I read in one of the area magazine, a story about the sunsets on Lake Erie, has been falsely reported to be one of the most beautiful in the world. The author of the article reported that "National Geographic" said they had no such information. The problem with the whole thing is that "National Geographic" never had the article in the first place but rather it was Rand McNally who reported that back in the 80's in their atlas. It is too bad that some authors don't bother to get all the details before writing articles.
Ok, I'm off my soapbox again.
