    You could throw a dyke in the water to stop it ,or just build a dam.

    Well it has not come over yet. there was a nice 3 or 4 hour break in the rain. Eric and a couple other friends came over and we had a empty the basement and get everything off the garage floor party. Then we went out and played in the water for a couple of hours. round 2 is just starting. they say we could get another 3" of rain. Dont worry, ill have plenty of pics. im stuck being up all night on river duty for the neighborhood. But i have a case of beer so i should be good.
