A Brand New Album for 1990...

How did we go from bright and beautiful: to torrential downpour: in a few short hours?

We were watching a movie (Music & Lyrics, brilliant 80's rock band spoof) and I heard water. I assumed that it was sprinklers till I heard beeping coming from my kitchen. It was our wonderful little Leak Frog announcing a flood. Yep, giant rain storm and water pouring in my kitchen floor. Mom even called a concrete guy today about the crack in the foundation, but it looks like she should have called a little earlier.

I'm sure I've seen rain that hard in Utah, but it's been a really long time. Before I put towels down in the kitchen. The water got about 2 inches deep. Good thing the closest we come to perishables on the floor are old cardboard boxes that haven't been recycled yet, eh?
The ceiling of our bedroom has a problem when it rains this hard too. And I'll be sleeping in a small puddle tonight.
We used every towel we could find. I think after the picture I even found a couple more and put them all down too. I would say "no permanent damage" but our kitchen walls won't recover from all the flooding this year.

It has been an interesting day, that's for sure. :)
