Flooding in Madison

Flooding in Madison

Yesterday we experience most rainfall in a 24 hour period in the history of Madison. We didn’t get hit nearly as bad in Verona, but the west side of Madison was crushed by flooding, with numerous roads closed, and houses and businesses heavily damaged. Here are a few photos of the chaos:

Thankfully, my house was mostly spared, aside from some water in the basement. There was enough water to soak the carpet, but not enough to damage anything else. Today, my wife and I worked to dry everything with a combination of fans and towels.

It was also enough water to make Mr. Paul the cat concerned, but everything should be back to normal in the next few days.
