Be Careful Out There

David Hartman reports 4 inches of rain in Millcreek.  He also reports the worst is over.  The kids and I witnessed what looked like a new car in the ditch between Grant's Ferry and Lakeside Plaza gas station (the Shell with La Tacqueria), as if it had skidded across the road while making the turn onto Grant's Ferry.
