Yesterday we were warned of an impending complex of thunderstorms that would come in overnight, destroying everything in its path. Folks around here panicked, remembering the derecho of 2012. The Marathon gas station in Albany actually ran out of gas! The storms came and have now past. They were nasty, dumping huge amounts of rain in a short time, overflowing my rain gutters, outpacing the 24" culvert under my driveway, and cutting huge erosion scars into the driveway itself. Kind of funny since I was just having a deep theological discussion with a co-worker about how water follows the path of least resistance, which in this case, happens to be my driveway. So, if you are coming for a visit, bring the 4WD.
