Catching Up: When God Sends a Flood....
Make Some Mud!!!
After the Big Earthquake and Hurricane Irene, came Tropical Storm Lee, which actually hit us the hardest of the troublesome trio. Reston received over ten inches of rain in a 24 hour period. Streets flooded, bridges collapsed, and creeks overflowed. Our basement flooded, too ....Ed and I spent eight continuous hours in our basement bailing out water and dealing with cleanup. We haven't even started the process of replacing our flooring yet. For the boys, it was one big party.....school was canceled, the boys ran around in their swimsuits and rainboots, and the neighborhood boys had the mother of all mud fights. Meteorologists said that this rainstorm was a 1 in 500 year event for our area. Lucky us.
