    We are having really bad flooding here. This is worse than Irene!!!!! You know it's bad when Jim Cantore from the weather channel is talking about your town and interviewing the state police. Will prob get stuck at work for a day or two or lose power. I am on a hill so near fear of my house flooding. And if it does I better build a ark. :facepalm:

    They said it will be twice as bad overnight. Plus the fans in my laptop died. So I have to run a small fan to blow on it to use it. Time for a new one. Gonna be a early nite 4:30am comes early and I am the one closest to work so They will send a safety team to come get me. Doubt many if any will make it to work. Gonna be a long day tomorrow :(

    Thanx everyone. Historic flooding is not what I wanna here. What's with the tropical storms I live in upstate NY. Irene was nothing compared to this go figure

    Stay safe. I am so sick of the never ending rain. Hard to rebuild roads in mud.

    I hope it all turns out okay for you Kellie. Just take care that you and yours are safe and sound. The rest is replaceable, Your not.

    Been okay over here so far this yr. but us Washingtonians are born and reared in the rain. That's how we aquired the name "Evergreen State".

    Green state is an under statement. Absolutely beautiful and worth every drop of rain!

    I'm glad to hear that you are safe so far Kellie, thank you for letting us know! Let us know if you need anything.

    And I agree...we've had more rain this week than we got out of Irene too. This going down in the basement and slopping the water down the sewer drain every hour is BS!

    Get a sump pump. We used to have a leaky basement but I put an end to that.

    We have one 5C but you'd just have to know my MIL to understand her fear of everything :( Not to mention the electrical problems we're having that I told you about in my email. We still can't figure out how water is getting into the breaker box. The electrician replaced the main line down to the meter and into the panel yesterday, but half the house is still without power. He's coming back Monday to replace this corroded breaker box and run some dedicated outlets for several major appliances. One of the breakers is so corroded that he can't even pull it :( You should see all of the jerry rigging and piggy backing that has been done over the years...it's frightening!

    I dont think we'll hear from kellie soon she is probably busy keeping dry. They showed binghamton on my local news all the way over here. It was a quick segment not much said. But just the fact that they made it to the montana news....

    Sounds like my house. When we trip a breaker 90% of the power in the house goes out. Most of the lines are daisy chained into one breaker switch.
