November 17, 2013. All week long, I kept hearing how nice it was going to be on Sunday, with temperatures in the 60's. "But it's going to rain," was always added. The weather reports were correct. It did warm up to the 60's, and it rained. It rained a lot. Tornadoes were a potential threat. A facebook contact actually reported one in a neighboring county. I looked outside and saw a flooded street, particularly along the curbs, where the surface curves downward. One neighbor in a raincoat and rainpants was stalking the sidewalks with a rake, looking for storm sewers clogged with the countless leaves that have fallen over the last week.
