Where I live, the city usually only shuts down for 3 feet of snow or an epic ice storm. Today, it's because of 4 inches of rain
. For reference, 4 inches of rain is the same as 4 feet of snow. The link doesn't mention the crazy amount of sinkholes created (though you could probably have guessed), the Miller Hill Mall is closed because the transformers are completely under water, and the best part is it only gets worse cause this cold front is stuck in place.
At one point last night, we were under a flash flood warning, a severe thunderstorm warning, and a tornado watch. Today it's just floods and rain, but damn. Don't be surprised if I'm washed away to Lake Superior or I wind up in Michigan tomorrow.
