It’s been raining. A lot. The downpours were enough to flood one of the main streets in my town, making driving pretty much impossible. The news reported that an old vacant building had collapsed. And from looking around the next day, the storms were enough to knock over many trees, which blocked roads and apparently crushed roofs. This must have been awful for any houses under construction.

As far as my house, the basement flooded enough that the carpet is not only wet, but puddles of water collected, and we had to move all the boxes upstairs. Even worse, once it flooded the rain didn’t quite let up, meaning the carpet has been draining continuously for the last two days without any signs of letting up soon. But nothing horrible.

And check out this video of the Wisconsin Dells homes that fell into the lake because of the rain:
