Question Want Rain???

If you want rain, Kathy, I'll send you some. Yesterday started out hot, humid, and sunny, but by about 5 p.m. all @#&* broke loose and we got a sudden torrential rain and thunderstorm which lasted for several hours. Our power went off for 6 hours in our area of the city. We had candles lit all over the house. It's amazing how much we rely on electricity. All in all, over 300,000 people were without power and some have just had it restored now. We set a record as we got 4 1/2 inches of rain in two hours, flooding underpasses, main roadways and lots of basements. A commuter train started filling up with water as the tracks were in deep water and the firemen had to rescue hundreds of passengers through windows and into inflatable rafts. The subways came to a halt, many still in tunnels, and the passengers had to walk through the tunnels to get out. What a mess!!! Today we just got a few sprinkles, but more rain is on the way for tomorrow. Hasn't been much of a summer so far. It's still humid but it's supposed to ease up by the weekend when the temperatures cool down a bit.
