not sure about other areas but my brother did have to pick up his kid from school and its only 2min away he had to find another way cos one way had to much water and the other way had power lines down and trees. so what should of been a 5 min trip turned out to be a 40min trip.

I say at least your all safe and dry.

here are a pic of the road by my brothers place and one more pic of third ave

Wow. I know now why they call Richmond *Gods Country*

We didnt get hit with really anything that day. I mean sure we had the rain but the winds were minimal.

I hope everything is ok over there now.
