Seeking Higher Ground
Is that a Chevy Noah he's on top of?
A groundhog sits on the roof of a car in the flooded garage of the Marriott Courtyard hotel on Eisenhower Avenue in Alexandria, Virginia. The picture is from The Washington Post.
We have had over 12 inches of rain in 48 hours and it is supposed to continue to rain all week. There is widespread flooding, including flooding that has closed the Department of Justice, the IRS, the Department of Commerce, and the Smithsonian.
My house is on a hill, and I have no basement (a solid rock house on a rocky hill), but some of my friends are not so lucky. The river and local streams should be amazing -- I will try to check those out tonight.
