Another One for the Record Books

So far the weather this year has been one for the record books. The Big Kahuna snow made this winter one of the snowiest on record. Now it appears that the rain this past weekend ranked right up there as well. According to this report by Frank Roylance in The Sun, “Elkridge and several other communities in Howard and Anne Arundel counties topped the charts for rain totals in Maryland for the 48 hours ending Sunday morning. The two-day total at Elkridge was 4.15 inches.”

Thankfully, all this rain has not caused another catastrophic flood in Ellicott City, at least not yet anyway.

It did in my basement. Within minutes, our basement flooded Saturday morning and ruined carpet we installed down there--just two months ago. Naturally, we didn't have flood insurance.

I live in Elkridge.
