It rains. It stops for about 5 minutes. Then it starts again. The Army Corps of Engineers calls two dams reaching record levels "an unprecedented historical event". Releasing some water from these will cause more flooding. But there's no other way to control the water in both dams.
Almost everything's closed. All the major freeways are almost completely empty. It's like a war zone. Many are totally flooded out. No car? Just walk and hope to be picked up by a helicopter or a boat.
Imagine walking thru the biggest city in your area and there's no traffic anywhere.
No predicted break until Thursday. In the meantime, symptoms are still there. Trying to keep some sense of balance.
