Flooding on Magnolia

This is why I was glad to beat the storm back to the shop (besides the fact that I didn't have my raingear with me, and 80mph winds are no joke):

Since the pic was blurry (too long exposure, but when I tried to use flash all you could see was raindrops that caught the light), let me describe what you're looking at. That's the streetlamp post across the street, which is set back three feet onto the sidewalk, which is 8-10" higher than the street. Water was rushing down the sidewalk like a river; it was ridiculous, and I'm glad I wasn't caught out in it.

Yea, I caught a ride home with a customer, since it hit about the time we closed...
gnarly stuff for sure.
