As some of you know, we moved to a new neighborhood a few months ago. I'm SO SO very glad we did today.

The Schuylkill river rose 21 feet today, a the neighborhood we used to live in flooded. Some people (who admittedly lived way closer to the river than we did--the neighborhood is on a serious incline--we lived about seven blocks from the river and twice as many stories up) had to be evacuated from their apartment building by boat this morning. We had several inches of running water right outside our front door every single time it rained while we lived there, so I can't imagine how it would have been trying to get to work this morning with major roads flooded.

And over in our new neighborhood, there were some puddles. It didn't affect our days at all.

It was raining like CRAZY all night, though. My sister and I were walking home in the storm yesterday evening and my shoes are still soaking wet.
