What a night we had last night here in Arkansas. We never got the bad storms like predicted but we did get a tremendous amount of rain. It rained to so hard that you couldn't see right in front of you. The rain came down so fast and so heavy that the storm drains in our apartment complex couldn't keep up with the demand. The parking lot flooded with water standing waist deep. There were four apartments that are built on the lower part of the lot and they flooded with water about ankle deep. My poor brother was out late last night attending to the residents with the flooded apartments and trying to free some of the storm drains from leaves and debris. It was well after midnight when he went to bed and this all started happening around 6:30pm last night. He was wet from the waist down and was cold since the temps had started dropping. I hope he doesn't get sick from the wet and cold. I'm tired this morning as I waited up for him last night and then got up this morning at 5:15am. My brother will be going in late today since he was up so late and I'm hoping that Daisy will let me take a little nap later on. I pray everyone that was in the path of this storm is safe and dry. It was a nasty one and I know the high winds and tornadoes did damage to some cities.

@simone10 You are lucky! Having great family members is awesome! I knew a woman who was a mirror image control freak of the Mother-in-Law she hates, she is not welcome there so she makes a big deal about the negative instead of celebrating love.

We experience that line of weather here in the panhandle. a good bit of rain and wind. A good thing that the Fort Pickens had campers evacuate the day beofre becuase high surf and wind has sand covering the roadway once again.
