Fierce Storms Cause Heavy Flooding, Outages [WP]
...torrents of rain deluged much of the Washington area last night, turning roads into rapids, stranding motorists in perilous currents and plunging more than 30,000 homes into darkness.The Beltway's closed by a mudslide at the moment (aha, just reopened).
National Airport has had 2x the typical total rainfall for June in the last 48 hours. And more is coming this week.
We haven't lost power and are otherwise fine (though unable to easily reach certain parts of town).
Coincidentally, we saw An Inconvenient Truth yesterday, which talks about the noticeable increase in climate volatility over the last decade, its demonstrable connection to human activity, and the changes we can and should make in response.
As Roger Ebert & the returned Medley say, this is as "must-see" a film as there ever has been. Failing that, at least explore the movie's site.
Reviewer MaryAnn Johanson:
...amazingly, An Inconvenient Truth isn�t a political film, not really, even if the debate about global climate change has come down to �sides� in the same idiotic way that the debate about evolution has, in the same way that the debate about heliocentricity once was. Because you don�t need to like Gore, or trust him, or even believe him to get a swift kick in the pants, one that�ll scare the hell out of you...Local News / Weather
