I live in New Jersey. Whatever powers that be seem to be attempting to put my state into the ocean. While one friend calls to tell me that she's been evacuated from her house because the water was coming up the steps, another tells me she's gone for a walk outside because it's "just rain".
I'm somewhere in the middle with a sump pump that can't handle the pressure. I'm glad I keep my things in the basement in plastic bags and bins.
