Rain, and more rain. It seemed to never stop, and then our homes were flooded. Homes damaged, cars floating away and residents rescued by boat.
It's been a hard week, and the suburban flooding has made it even harder.
We want to hear your stories -- what you dealt with, what was flooded, how you plan to recover and clean up.
We want to see your photos -- your basements, your yards, and hopefully pictures of the flood waters receding so your house can be your home again.
If you'd like to share, send us stories and photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll include them in our ongoing coverage of how the area is fighting back and cleaning up. Please put "flooding" in the subject line. We will post submissions online and use some of them in our print editions. Include a phone number if you are willing to be interviewed.
