Tropical storms are freaking WET

Tropical storm Isaac dumped over 10 inches of rain on Boynton Beach before Sunday night (August 25) was over. I went to work on Monday, and surprise surprise, it rained all day. When I got home around 9 PM the lake was up to the palm trees on the right of this picture. Yes, that's my patio directly to the left. Normal level for the lake would be at the right of the shrub line.

That is just too darn close, people. I am not in a flood zone, but you better believe I bought the flood insurance. This picture was taken Tuesday morning, and you can see it had already receded several feet by then. Thanks be to God. It could have been so much worse.
