The rains came and conquered. Drivers got stuck in high water at McLemore and Shady Lane. And they weren't the only ones.
As the rain fell, water levels went up and up and up. A pond quickly surrounded a dry goods business. Owner Billy Tomlinson said, "The biggest problem is trucks loading in and out. We can't load in or out when it rains like this." Keeping their dry goods dry is a top priority. It's a drill they've gotten used to after five years of flooding every time a hard rain falls. "The city has made a couple of attempts to fix it but as you can see it hasn't done much good."
