It rained all day today. The rain started early in the morning with thunder and lightning. It continued throughout the day and into the afternoon. At times it poured. There wasn't much to do but stay inside.
Everything got soaked. Some areas flooded. Cars could not get through low-lying roads and streets with standing water. There was just too much water. Some homeowners experienced flooding in their basements. They needed to pump the water out of their homes.
The rain finally stopped in the late afternoon. On the evening news, they said we got over two inches of rain. Some nearby areas got three inches of rain. That's a lot of water in one day.
