A couple weeks ago, I posted about the Chilean boat that was thrown into the shores during a wind storm. That was wierd. This is weirder:
This is where I grew up. I have driven past that corner, that accounting shop, thousands of times in my life. Dan and Helen live maybe a mile away; my parents too!
According to the local paper, “The damage caused by a near-record deluge that flooded basements and swamped businesses exceeded $28.5 million in Milwaukee County, according to the initial estimate Friday from Sheriff David Clarke Jr. Gov. Jim Doyle declared the county to be in a state of emergency Friday, an action that directs state agencies to assist the effort to repair damage caused by Thursday’s deluge.”
Needless to say, my thoughts are with friends and family back home in Wisconsin. Hope everyone is okay!
