Weekly Roundup #7 (December 8, 2007)

flood.jpgWe had severe flooding in the neighborhood this week, schools were shut down, roads were closed, and a lot of people were out of their homes… It wasn’t a very nice week, but the rain has stopped and things seem to be drying up again. Fortunately for me I live on a hillside so the water didn’t get up to my house, but best of luck to those that DID have flooding, and I hope you had flood insurance!

This week I stumbled on a lot of sites BECAUSE the rain kept me locked up tight in here, a few of the favorites were…
