On comes the flood

So I had good reasy to worry yesterday about the rain waters rising and seeping into my room. Apparently the whole of Lahore and other cities and villages in the Punjab was flooded. At least fifteen people died, several houses collapsed, one man was electrocuted (standing in water while working a photocopy hypothesis), all the markets are closed, and cars were left in the streets - three or four feet deep in water. Good thing I didn't try to go anywhere yesterday!

Rain is forecasted for the next three or four days, so keep all of us in the flood plains in prayer as it continues to beat down.
