As you may have heard, Okieland has been hit by some major rain in the past 24 hours. In fact as I type this we are the lead story on CNN as rescuers try to save a teenage girl in a tree above flood waters in Oklahoma City. They reached her but then their rescue boat sank and now a dive team is trying to reach all of them!
When I took these pictures around town last night at 7pm we had numerous weather warnings; tornado watch, flash flood, severe thunderstorm all issued. These skies told us we were about to get hammered, it started as we drove home and proceeded to thunder and rain solidly into the early hours. I have never seen it rain so hard in my life!
We got 2.5 inches in 6 hours, to put this in perspective, from Jan - June 2010 we only had 11.5 inches total! But we got off light, around Oklahoma City they have had between 6 - 11 inches in the past few hours.
So my world today is 'Water World' which is quite bizarre for Okieland in June, this has been a very wierd year for weather! My blog seems to be turning into a weather blog lately.
