OKC, the Seattle of the Great Plains!!

From an AP wire story

In Oklahoma, about 20 firefighters had to use a raft to rescue 16-year-old twin sisters from their car, stalled in rushing bumper-deep water Tuesday.

The Oklahoma City area received about an inch of rain in 24 hours, bringing the city's annual total to 28.03 inches — about 10 inches above normal. Flooding closed some roads Wednesday in central and northeastern Oklahoma.

There are 10" wide mushroom caps growing in my backyard, people. We are gonna have to change "where the wind comes whistling down the range" to "where the rain comes running down your back" or something. Its like Ireland around here.
