I'm not glad these things happen but I have to acknowledge a certain lack of understanding when it comes to living on a floodplain.

Of course, I don't get people that live in Florida or California too well either.

I was going to do a post on "Is it Katrina or Nigeria?" but my damned server is about to go down. Thing is out here it floods like it did in New Orleans ALL OF THE TIME. I should be able to put it up on Monday to show you guys.
