For the last 12 hours it has been pouring rain. Usually a thunderstorm will thunder, lightning, and rain for a couple of hours, clear up, and be done with. Not so this time. I had been watching the Accuweather radar showing this massive yellow, red, and purple rainpocalypse move closer and closer but it looked like it would stay north of us. Needless to say, it didn't. Not only did it not stay north of us, it has moved in and stayed long past its welcome.
My family is flying home from Europe today via Chicago late this afternoon. Well, nothing is flying around here this morning and unless things clear up soon, I foresee a protracted visit to the Windy City. And with many of the roads flooded getting home from the airport will be impossible.
Well, the cats and I are warm and dry here at home. We even have electricity so far. But the Accuweather radar does not look promising.
