Everybody safe ?

In Columbia, I've never seen anything
likw the last few days. Think we had 18" of rain from Saturday afternoon till dawn Sunday, when a tree destroyed my bathroom where I had been standing 5 minutes earlier. I would have never known what hit me.
In a hotel room, all my family and co-workers are safe but several had several feet of water in their houses.
Life goes on. Be careful out there and take care or your neighbor. We can't afford to lose the few Democrats we have in SC.

1. I saw a report that a dam broke near Florence.

 

Hope SC peep stay safe. Many roads and bridges closed, several roads washed out and bridges collapsed.

3. Sorry for the obvious sexism,

It is actually climate change and not the nice Mother who did this to us.

4. That's a lot of rain!

At the very most, we might get 3-4" in 24 hrs. I can't imagine what it's like for you.

Glad you're all safe...take care!

5. We average 45 inches a year

Getting 1/3 of that in 3 days is not going to be a good thing.
We're drowning, the Northwest is burning, and the republicans are either ignoring it or blaming it on Obama.

8. Thanks so much

I have family in Columbia and 4 of the 11 people in my office were not in their homes last night so we are taking care of each other. I'll start the insurance/getting in the repair list duty today. But thanks so much Mercuryblues for the offer.
