With a thunder and a flash, the rains came... and summer fun was turned to summer gloom... but I love to hear the rain and watch the storm. 1DMk2N w/70-200 f/2.8 IS

Yeah not so good, I remember going down to the Catskill Scenic Railroad to meet up with Ross, Trish and Johnny that I saw alot of rain and oh so much flood damage....all the damaage actually added on something like 2 hours of detours I had to take through small towns and back roads. Nice ride but all the damage. Has there been federal funding for those counties really hit hard by all this rain?

Yes, they were talking about it a couple weeks back on the radio. The Northeast sustained huge flood damage and the feds gave them money just like they did down south with the Katrina people... the big difference was you didn't hear the press whining about how terrible of a job everyone was doing that was trying to help. One of the talk radio shoes talked about that one day.

We got hammered again today around 1pm. I was on my way back from the hospital....... I do NOT like driving when I can't see anything thru my windshield... and when I CAN see, it looks like a river not a road. :eek:

I pulled into a shopping center and sat in my car for about 20 minutes til it died down... then went into Best Buy and bought more ink and photo paper. :D

And you expect us to believe that you JUST happened to be in front of the Best Buy parking lot when the deluge came. Ya sure what ever you say. :rolleyes: :D :D :rolleyes:

That is EXACTLY what my husband said when he called and asked what was taking me so long. :lmao :wm ha ha ha ha ha!

Actually I only needed to get black ink (I bought all the color cartridges yesterday for my photo printer) so I bought the black and one more color for a "spare" cuz at Best Buy... for every two ink cartridges you buy, you get $10 off any package of photo paper. :tup

Now I am stocked up on supplies; I'm going to make and print photo birth announcements for the birth of my new Granddaughter. :tup :happy
