Today was a great example of our shifting climate.  This area received some heavy storms and will likely see additional rain during the next few days.   It is very likely that we will continue to see rain events that dump more precipitation, more quickly, and more frequently.  Hello flash flooding.

On a completely different note, I found a great article on Twitter through the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM).  It is titled the “Top 5 Flood Insurance Issues To Watch This Year“.  Take a quick look and learn about what the industry experts are saying about flood insurance…it’s a fast read.

That’s all for me tonight.  It was a long day full of rain and mud and rain…you get the idea!
