We've had a little storm here in Omaha, by God, Nebraska.
Actually, we're still in the middle of a little storm -- or, more accurately, storms -- around these parts.
This is the typically Midwestern understated way of saying "WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE!!!" We've already smashed the record for rain in a day . . . which has fallen in about four hours.
And in my part of town, we were lucky. There have been no rescuing people from houses in fire department boats, as there has been in northeast Omaha. There also have been no suspected tornadoes or baseball-size hail, as there have been north of town.
ABOUT 3 feet in the front of our garage got wet. So what -- it's a garage.
And nobody has had to rescue us with an airboat. That's something, at least.
I am, however, afraid to check out the basement.
Nighty night from windblown, hail-pocked, flooded Omaha. The College World Series starts at the end of next week -- let's hope there's something left for folks to visit.
UPDATE: Make that "smashed the record for rain in day for the month of in June." It was Omaha's fifth-highest all-time rain total for a single day.
