There was a house fire earlier - many lightening strikes and now the fire department is out rescuing people from cars that are stranded in puddles and evacuating people from houses that are not passable to cars - so the brush trucks will bring people out.
And I had to go out in it again LOL A fireman had picked his daughter up at the Rail Road station - and just then the house fire call came in he went to the fire house that was closest but since his truck was a stick she couldn't drive it home so DH called to see if I could bring her to her house -- Thank God I have a Tahoe - I went slow and made it ok but regular cars would have had water coming inside because the water on the roads was so high. So once again I was soaked LOL
Never a dull moment ;) And once again I am happy to live on a hill....
