The water comes up, and it goes right back down.
This was looking out my bedroom window, Sunday morning:
Sorry about the screen in the way. You can see the garden in the lower right - that fence ended up about fifteen feet down the yard. The water at that point was about ten feet away from the side of the house. I am sure it got closer, as the water continued to rise, but I was not about to hang around and see how close it got. When they got ready to close the road in front of my house, I skedaddled.
So! That's what five inches of rain does to my neighborhood. Flippin' weather.
