It's raining. REALLY RAINING. Not just a shower...an entire day of rain. Those of you know that around "these parts" it doesn't happen that often. But 8 INCHES in ONE day is pretty ridiculous. We live near a "lake", or maybe I should call it a storm water detention reservoir, as the sign says. And when we bought the house last fall, we went back and forth with the insurance and mortgage people about flood insurance. We wouldn't be able to afford the house if we were required to get floor insurance. We were pumped when we found out that we were on a suitable elevation that didn't require it. But as I look outside at the rising waters across the street, maybe we should've thought differently. Sand bags anyone?
