    Yeah ... my ex's basement was flooded, blew her water heater pilot out. It's crazy, out here we NEVER get inclement weather stuff ... unless you count 110F heat in the summer ... and now we have flooding, highways closed ... my parents are flooded IN the little town they live in up north, as ALL the highways are closed... it's weird.

    I tell you Texans, if we could put this stuff in tanker trucks and get it out there, it'd be good for both of us ... put out your fires and dry us out!

    Ninnies!

    Back in '96, we had a 500 year flood. We're talking big. The term 500 year flood comes from the time period one of that scale can be expected: a .2% chance of it happening in any given year.
