Hey Georgia, I think we stole your water

We've had lots of storms this year. My laptop's spending more evenings turned off and unplugged. But the last few days we've gotten not just lots of lightning and thunder but torrential rains, and flooding. I still think Bloomington as a whole is flood-proof due to slopes and height above real rivers, but slopes mean various dips which are floodable. LJ community photos, and student paper photos. I hadn't even noticed Wednesday's excitement, not having left the house much due to rain, sore throat, and little intrinsic reason to go out, but I've seen the alluvial deposits -- yes, the gravel banks are thick enough to qualify, though my rusty geologist fu thinks there's probably a better name -- and now we're getting a bunch more rain, current 1/3 inch an hour, thougrh I guess that's not near Wednesday's peak of 1.5 inches/hour and 2.32 inches total for the day.

So, how about that weather control?

I'd pass on the weather control-- the flooding might piss off the people, but it's pleasing the hell out of my garden. Besides, the storms were stupidly beautiful-- I took a walk to watch the lightning last night, and did some sketching of the storms rolling in. Whee!

Yeah, but I think nekomata said her garden got washed away. Hmm, or maybe just partially destroyed.
