It's flooding here at the moment.
School was cancelled yesterday and today.
Last night we had a black-out from 6pm until 10.30am.
I'm carrying a large torch/flashlight around in my pocket, just in case the power goes out again.
My back yard spent all of yesterday under water.
Several towns around mine have been declared disaster zones and at least one (that I know of) is being evacuated.
It's been still for most of the day. The sun even came out for a few hours.
I feel a bit like I'm in the eye of the storm, but I don't think I am.
We were supposedly supposed to get another big storm tonight (a few hours ago), but it hasn't really come. We got some medium-heavy rain intermittently for an hour or two, but now it's stopped completely.
The news said that the storms are supposed to last for 2 weeks. I seriously hope that's not the case; I've been in my house for 38 hours (but who's counting) and I'm already getting cabin fever.
Also, I haven't heard from [personal profile] spaceman since yesterday. I'm guessing her power is still out. I hope she's okay!

Also, I forgot to switch my UPS off last night, so, by this morning, it was completely flat. I didn't have my computer for 22 hours! SHOCK!HORROR
