    Tomorrow at 7:00 A.M., in Ohio, we are supposed to get 4 - 8 inches of rain. Last time we had a flood it was a mere 2 inches of rain! Of course, we had lots of rain before that, but we just had a bunch today also. Wish us luck! I'm hoping my computer doesn't get damaged... :roll: I should've just kept it in my room instead of going back to the basement.

    Now, if it is going to be category 6, then I suggest you heed this acronym very well, and I mean it as an order and not an insult

    GTFO NOW!

    On the other hand, if its gonna be weak and pathetic, your call

    Well, it knocked out power for a million people, so odds are we wont be hearing from orcfan for a little while. But seeing how the water was almot to people's rooftops, I certainly hope he didnt stay in the basement.... :!:

    Well, I'm back! I ripped everything out of my computer and took it upstairs to find out the power didn't go out, and that we weren't flooded by about one inch. I'm in Ohio, and fortunately, we got a break in the storm. We have a little slope outside of the patio that builds up a little stream every time it rains. I guess we just got lucky. :wink:

    ohio.



    when it hit louisiana and such, it was category 5-6. after coming inland, it was reduced to lines of thunderstorms with weak rotation.

    i.e. Ohio will not be affected as much.

    I know, but flooding happened before and we had less rain than this! Also, now we have a huge sinkhole in our yard. I mean, like, 2 feet in diameter.
