Weather. Or not.

Another rainy day. The official word seems to be that, here in the vicinity of Philadelphia, we had two inches of rain this morning. And then there were the towns that had five inches or six inches or similar ridiculous amounts. Many, many roads,  including main highways, were closed at least half the day because they were flooded – once the ground gets well and truly saturated so it just can’t absorb any more, it doesn’t take much rain to cause a flood.

As a result, lots of people had to find alternate routes to get to work. My son says he got thoroughly lost during his morning commute and had to get directions from a strange old man in a big boat full of pairs of animals.
