My town I think got 7 inches, offically others areas as much as 12 inches but I have heard higher numbers some people rain gauges. Because the area sits on rock bed so it is hard for water to soak in, major rain almost always means flooding.
The full extent of how it effected me is, a couple of power spikes last night, TV going out and having to take a different route to work.
DD2 had a lot more issues. The storm caused the fire alarm at her apartment complex to go off. To get away from the noise she went through the rain to wait it out in her car until they got it fixed.
Because of the flooding there was a 2 hour delay at the school she teaches at. Even with that she was still late because of all the road cloaures. Only about 40% of the kids made it in. On the good side she got off early, because of the road closures the principal let them leave as soon as the kids did.
A lot of other people were not so lucky, a lot of evacuations last night and rescues last night and today. On of DH's co-workers lost his house.
