FLOOD !!!!!

It's been pretty bad in my area. I've seen water higher in places or where I've never seen standing water before. Several square miles of farmland turned into seemingly endless lakes......

I was so surprised and worried about navigating around this weekend I didn't take pics. I was totally awestrucked by the flood waters. Houses in parts of town were filled by a couple feet of water.

I hope everyone is safe.

Yeah we had a HUGE tornado in the area... thing was 1/2 a mile wide and was on the ground for a long time.
Came within a few miles of myself and many friends & family!
Luckily the specific areas that were hardest hit are sparsely populated.
Everyone I know was unaffected other than some power outages, so that's good.
But it sure did a bunch of damage.

Stay away from the water in lowered Free ram air Camaro's! Water does not compress. My first LS1 went toast that way.
