    Almost May in DFW and we have a freeze warning tonight. For reference it was 79-80 degrees yesterday - bizarre weather nationwide...

    Sergio, why bail it out? Put in some sunlamps, throw some sand on the steps, get a nice little raft, and enjoy the beach!

    How can we get some of that rain shipped to Colorado? We're already under water restrictions and there's still snow on the ground.

    This is the next township over from where I'm at, less than a mile away from my home.

    That means my old house on Burlington Ave. is under water. It's flooding here in B-N too.

    The river behind my house floods the trail often enough, but it is too far up the hill to get to my basement.

    This isn't guitar related ... surprised the mod didn't lock it down.

    There are guitars in Sergio's (the OP) basement.

    And before it ate 3 cars, the sinkhole ate a guitar.....

    Possibly, route 53 is gone! They evacuated Four Lakes... displaced something like 20,000 people, I never thought about how many people lived there. Stay dry!

    The news is too preoccupied with other things to report on this, it's the first I've heard of it.

    In Phoenix news, I just had to increase the amount of water the watering system sprays on my back lawn because it was looking pretty dry. 77 and sunny.

    Sorry to hear. I'm only dealing with a little seepage now, but man is garbage day going to be a big one next week.
