We had the most incredible rain storm last night! I think we had over 4-inches of rain in just over an hour. There was lots of flooding, building down, debris, and power outages. It was a little unexpected because there wasn’t a lot of notice that it was going to storm. We were at a birthday dinner for our friends and got back just in time to grab the umbrella from outside. I should have brought the chairs in because they were strewn all over the place after the storm was over. I was a little worried because Rowan and Ron were at swim class, and hadn’t returned when the storm started. They finally pulled in the driveway, drenched, and the water in the parking lot at swim was just around shin level when they finally made a run for the car. There were parts of town that water was up to the top of people's cars. I know that is not as significant as the flooding in the southcoast area, but for us it is significant and it made me feel thankful that we didn't have any property damage.
