Rain of Terror

It's still pouring out there, and the metropolitan Washington area has already received well over a foot of rain. We'll keep getting wet until Sunday, says the National Weather Service.

I'd done some work in my front lawn last year to improve the grade, but my laundry room still got a bit of a ducking. I spent some quality time with the shopvac (best Christmas present ever!), and everything should be all right.

In honor of the mighty Potomac river, due to crest on Thursday, here's a relevant verse from Johnny Cash's "Five Feet High And Rising":

How high's the water, mama?
Three feet high and rising
How high's the water, papa?
She says it's three feet high and rising

Well, the hives are gone,
I've lost my bees
The chickens are sleeping
In the willow trees
Cow's in water up past her knees,
Three feet high and rising
