sirens blaring (ack, there goes another one as I post--sheesh),
this series of storms has also dumped several inches of rain (so far) in
just a couple of hours. Here, the water is pouring off the roof
above our front porch.
At one point, all that rain turned the easement in
our backyard into a temporary but swiftly rushing stream
(to the delight of my son, heh).
This is from the front porch. If you look carefully,
past the water coming off the roof, you can see the street
filled with millions of tiny dancing angels--at least that's what
cloudbursts of raindrops hitting the ground look like to me.
