I just got one of those rude government forced texts on my smart phone telling me to be aware of flash flooding. That is 12 hours after I listened to 3.5 inches of rain  fall on my metal roof last night, and had already been out and checked the rain gauge.
Thank God for government stealing 50% of what we make. They provide such invaluable services that we could just not live without, such as stating the obvious, and then forcing it down our throats, all the while making us pay through the nose for it.
