We never had that problem back in 2007 before the road construction was complete and we had multiple floods in a two month time frame.
Why did Ed have to go into work?

That is a LOT of rain, and pretty insane that the roads were designed better. I'm sure it wasn't an inexpensive project and it's ridiculous that there have been all these issues!
