After raining about two inches in an hour yesterday afternoon, we got to see what flash flooding really looks like. Parts of downtown had water up to the tops of cars, stores along a main commercial strip were all flooded, and most of the major arteries through town became impassable. It took both of us an hour of trying to finally make it to Little Boy's daycare, where the power had been out for two hours. Every ditch, containment pond, and small stream was literally obliterated. Dramatic and scary. I guess monsoon season has come to the midwest.
