Man, I feel great today.  Here's why:

Yesterday I worked a couple of hours late.  I had intended to go to the grocery store and/or Target to exchange some pantaloons, but I had a headache and it was raining, so I just went home.  I took some Advil, shucked off my clothes, and went to bed, intentionally not setting an alarm.  Man, I went to sleep at around 7:30 and didn't wake up until ELEVEN THIRTY!  I realized that if I got up then, I'd be up until four and my whole nap would have been for naught.  So I just kept on keepin' on.  I slept for almost twelve hours!  Holy crap!  And I was STILL a half hour late for work!  Amazing.

Speaking of rain, wtf?  On the news they kept talking about flooding, roads flooding and houses flooding and people being RESCUED FROM ROOFS, and Gina apparently saw this shit first hand.  But my dudes, it was only raining.  For only one day.  This really didn't seem like that big a deal!  It's not like this is a hurricane or something!  It's not like it's been raining a lot lately!  Someone needs to redesign SOMETHING, because this shit is inexcusable.

...

Man, I started writing this this morning, and now work is done, so . . . I am too.  Catch you later.

in florida, most of the drainage isn't underground... there are actual canals in people's yards (not a lot of sidewalks) while this has gotta allow for quicker evaporation under the hot sun, it does cause problems.

even though most rain showers are only a few hours long, when major showers (and hurricanes, of course) drop lots of rain, everything floods EASILY.

so...at least 5 days out of the year, i live in an apartment complex/island.

Apparently, what happened was that either 6 or eight of the dams busted in and around Lumberton, Pemberton, Medford - the Rancocas Creek area. The flood level for the Rancocas Creek is 2 point something feet and it is currently over 4 feet. The streets that I did drive on had the creek's water lapping at the edge of the asphalt. I too wondered what the hell happened - it was just a thunderstorm, but that storm caused all hell to break loose from a few poorly structured dams.
