    The weather is horrible, but I have to laugh at your cheap boat comment. My uncle lives on a houseboat, but can't go home because of flooding!! The road to his marina is under water, so boats don't always help.

    Hate to hear about more tornadoes. Hope no one else has been killed. I wonder when this awful weather is going to get better.

    I live just north of Memphis and we had sirens going off again here. They were having the Memphis in May event...and they had sirens go off there also.

    This is pics of what the Mississippi looks like

    I saw the flooding pictures already. This rain needs to go some place where they need it for a good week or 2. MissM you stay safe down there. I've been praying each for everyone dealing with this weather.

    It's been raining all day here too.

    When Norfolk, Va had it's flood my Navy son borrowed a Kayak to get around. The Navy did not have any RIB's available to pick him up for work. All the trucks in the area where he lived had drowned. Good thing the apartment was on stilts.
    You know with all the rain we are all having now that come Fall it will be dry as a bone and we will have to water.

    I saw that one on the news. Terrifying no matter where you live.

    No boat but wish we had some of your rain! Texas is really hurting; Houston is now officially in extreme drought condition; other parts of the state are the same or even worse except northern counties along OK and MO borders. Pray for rain for us!
