I am at Wegmans, our new local supermarket, and there is free wireless internet. At the supermarket. I no longer live in Central Pennsylvania.

Back in September 2004, Matt and I signed the lease on our current apartment in Harrisburg. Three days later, Harrisburg flooded. I'm not sure why I didn't blog about it (I blogged about the release of Firefox 1.5, but not the hugely frightening flood?), but it was pretty intense. Luckily, our apartment was quite unscathed.

However, I am convinced that there is some sort of rain god out there who doesn't like it when we move house, because today, just four days after closing on our house, Downingtown flooded like a motherfucker. Holy crap. Matt's parents were around, and for a while, I thought we were going to be stranded. Luckily, flash floods subside as soon as they appear, so the roads cleared up, although we were left with several inches of water in our basement, which also now smells like gasoline.

What do you want me to do, Rain God? What sacrifices shall I make? Guide me. Amen.
