It's just been a warm, steady rain here in the D.C. area so far (i.e., no wind). But don't bother going to the hardware stores...they're already out of flashlights, batteries, generators, sump pumps...

As others have said....."yes", it's a lie. And "no", you probably won't go to hell over it (i.e., it's not likely to be the last straw). On the other hand, think about the impact of telling the...
