Hmm, we'll have to see what can be done. If Alexander is inaccessible, there's always gonna be something else around. Even Blue Springs wouldn't be a bad first dive.

Thanks for the links and the map Falcon. We've run out of time to visit many, but will try and get to some.

Of course, if this rain keeps up, her first open water dive may be on the street out front.

This storm is pretty nasty! Looked like it was going to be minor and is going to end up costing a bundle! The news this morning said Cocoa Beach has had 24" of rain? Wow!

Good luck. It sounds like you are getting your own Tropical Storm Allison.

Be safe and God keep you safe! That feeling of the world coming down around your ears is a very unsettling one.

Some plastic sheeting will help the "sandbags" be more water tight.

Below are instructions on how to sandbag

Wow Izzy, you guys got some rain alright, here in Orlando we didn't get any wind and only some rain where we were at, no flooding where we were at. Well it's all down here from here, good luck there, the water should get sucked back in the aquifer pretty fast due to the drought season.

benjammin, the rain will probably turn several of the springs into sinks so be careful when swimming around sinks. When we use to get heavy rains when cave diving and the springs that flowed out started to pull back in gets dangerous due to reverse current. We would never go into a cave if the water was pulling and it only happens when you get the heavy rains usually. Good luck on the diving.
