Muddy Waters

For those watching or at the game yesterday, remember the rain?? Turns out we got the most rain in a single day - 6.58". And it's still coming down. Supposedly this is Ike making his/its presence known. All kinds of flooding being reported -- the roundabouts near the airport are closed, Granger is starting to drown, and apparently mud from campus excavations is creeping out into intersections like 'the blob.' I'm keeping an eye on the river across the street. The ground is waterlogged, water is just pooling in the yard. Hope the basement is waterproofed...

UPDATE -- 10.77 inches and counting.

Man, that's a lot of rain!

On the bright side, if it was snow, it would be between 3 and 4 feet. Feel any better? No?

Oh man, I hope the lab makes it too -- good thing you're all plasticized (although that makes it sound like you're at Body Worlds....)
