    Man. It's a lucky thing you posted that completely random image of water falling in the article. I'd entirely forgotten what rain looked like until that

      @Justin....hilarious!!!!! Its a thing of beauty. The picture looks more like a photo at a salon where you should feel tranquil with soothing music in the background....not to be compared to a huge flood which they are reporting on..........jeepers!
