A Flood of Mishap

Our planned May trip to England was postponed by a sad event, the death of Dianne's stepfather in Laurel, Mississippi. Although we were very sad to lose him, he had not been well for a very long time and had no prospects of getting better.

When our return to Atlanta included yet another incident of heavy rainfall in the Montgomery, Alabama area, we were not at all surprised. It's uncanny how many times we've been innundated with precipitation in that city. Today's flash flood actually made the news with an estimated 12 inches of rain falling in the city in one hour. The Alabama legislature was ordered to evacuate the state capital building after the basement filled with four feet of water and a wall collapsed.
