Re: Rain, sweet rain

Kitty, all of us that live near the coast get foot deep rain when it storms.
No drains you know, or at least in the case here, 300 year old clogged
drains. (OK, maybe not quite 300 years, but close! And if it's high tide,
then you really have to watch out. I remember when I lived in Charleston
people sitting on tables in the Applebee's downtown and waitresses serving
drinks in knee high water. Can that be sanitary?
