I was on my way to work on Sunday to cover for a coworker who was off and it started to rain. No big deal, right? I had looked at weatherbug before I left and it had just a tiny spot on the radar. Nothing to worry about. Then the rain got so hard I could barely see and the more I drove the more the rain piled up. On my first stop (I fill vending machines) I got out of the car in my rain coat and ran inside. There was no electricity and I was already soaked. "OK" I thought and then on to the next stop. I then realized I needed gas. I found a gas station and got out to pump gas. The rain and wind were sideways by then. I got back in the car and the rain had soaked through my raincoat, my sweatshirt, my t-shirt, my jeans, and yes my undies too! I went to my next stop and filled everything just fine. Except I realized I could not keep my pants up because they were so wet and heavy they kept slipping down. I knew I would have to stop by the house to get some dry clothes. This is when I remembered I had my camera in my purse and I took a few pictures of my trip back home and then back to work in the flash flood that I was unprepared for.....I am a girl scout and I know to keep a change of clothes for the kids in the car, but maybe I should keep some for me too. lol I hope you enjoy the pictures better than I did the drive. I have never been in a flash flood before and I hope never to be in one again!
The best part was seeing two 40yr old guys swimming in their driveways.....
This is the highway underpass
A mud river down the other side of the road
The sun did finally come out!
