I've been wondering how you folks are fairing down there. If we get more than three inches in a day you might as well break out your ark. High water table to start with, almost the entire Lansing area was built on a swamp.

Good to here you are ok!

How's power holding up? It's the ice storms that kill us.

Saw a picture this morning at a nursing home, with the residents sitting in wheel chairs with waist deep water. I believe in the follow up they did get rescued, I would have been severely pissed that they were not evacuated before then.

One of my customers today has a sister who lives just outside of Huston, she showed me a bunch of videos and pictures. Thankfully she's ok, but many of her neighbors were under water.

Said 11 trillion gallons of water have fallen.. Let that sink in. I live by Lake Winnebego, which happens to be the second biggest inland lake in the country. Saw a stat on the news, it would have filled this lake 15 times over.. I have never seen anything like that before.
