    Wow, that's unbelievable. I hope you're doing okay.

    Now I have to ask the obvious question - are your bikes all right?

    Louisville, Kentucky? How long has it been raining for?

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    You left your lights on. You might want to turn them off before your batter goes dead. Just sayin..

    The big question is why are they on? The roads will probably and closed and not going to be able to drive very far.

    I'm glad you have a sense of humor about this whole thing. I'd be crying!
