It's not often that little Rhode Island leads the national TV news broadcasts but we managed to do just that with the insanely heavy rains and floods this week. Here's a little multi-media action that hits close to home for us...literally. The street in front of our house had foot-deep rapids yesterday and about three-quarters of our backyard was submerged under a couple of feet of water. The best gage of the depth is my neighbor's picnic table, the seats of which were almost under water. By this morning most of the water had receded and my neighbor's picnic table was usable again, thank goodness. Big chunks of the neighborhood pavement have washed away, though, leaving us here to wade through the swamps. Luckily, though, this all just a hassle and everybody here seems okay.
