Silver lining

MMSD rain gauges measured totals of 9.55 inches at N. Teutonia Ave. on Milwaukee's north side near Glendale

I guess there are some advantages to renting a crappy apartment on the second floor. I'm dry and generally uninconvenienced. I took a scenic detour past the Milwaukee River on my way home from work and it's higher than I've ever seen it, but not out of control.

It's only rained for what, four days? Not quite Iowa 1993 yet--rained for six weeks. Another bonus: no one in IA, WI, or IN will have to watch Bill Clinton's lip quiver as he gropes young female flood victims and claims he's feeling their pain. *shudder*

Iowa City looks a little like 1993...
