Also beware of possible power outages as all the local TV stations are forecasting such a probability during the evening hours from attending the Recycling workshop to staying home watching the NCISes or DWTS and the like. While it likely won't be a 30-hour blackout like July 06, stay inside if you don't have to go anywhere.

The rain has been anything but "light." The streets are flooded over here by Harvest Park and all of the neighbor's backyards are flooded as well.

Growing up out east, I'm always facinated we can't manage 3 inches of rain without flooding. There is this thing called "grading" you are supposed to do to roads and yards so they don't become swimming pools. Do you really think people in the midwest sandbag thier house 3 times a week when it rains?

Do people in the Midwest have dried out and hard-packed clay soils that haven't seen a lick of rain all summer?
