Well, Hurricane (now tropical depression) Ike has arrived, and it's pretty exciting out there - the wind is whipping the rain into a crazy fog-like mist out on the highway, and there are more than a few tree branches down. It looks like the house will once again not fall down, so with any luck we'll be fine until the next one hits, presumably in a few weeks....
By the way - a little note to the corporations around here - you probably don't need to run your sprinklers when there's rain strong enough to warrant flash flood warnings. Just a tip.
ike brought rain all the way to michigan. at one point sunday literally the entire state was covered in doppler green. lots of river flooding in the s.e. mich area.
