Photos 1, 2, 20, 21 AND 23 are relatively close to my house. Picture 7 is from the city David Wallimann used to live in.

I spent 5 hours trying to get to/from work on Monday in the rain. Tuesday the weather was fine, but the traffic was crazy because so many roads were washed out. I took the day off after I couldn't get to work.

They're predicting more rain this weekend.

Very sad. Damage must be catastrophic, not just for things, but also for people.
Is it very common in the area?

Living here in the midwest that is something that is always just one rainy week away from happening to many of us. We had floods this spring. Luckily my main house did not flood but the home that I rent out was flooded.
If I am not mistaken Georgia has had bad drought the last couple of years. Hopefully everyone will recover. Its harder these days with the slower economy.

I've lived in Atlanta for 20 years and I've never seen it like that.
