UPDATE: Flash flood warning continues today

Update: With rain expected today, the National Weather Service has issued yet another flash flood warning for our area today. Flash floods yesterday flooded parts of north Asheville, including the Beaverdam Fire Department, where in a matter of minutes, three feet of water filled the basement, according to WLOS reports.

PREVIOUSLY: The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning until 11 p.m. tonight as thunderstorms dump additional rain on the already soaked core of Asheville.

The NWS predicted about 1 to 3 inches of rain. Just before 9 p.m., social media already had reports of serious flooding near Merrimon Avenue and the River District.

    Fistbump, progressives. We brought down civilization! Finally!

    Fasten your seat belts for a run on sentence-

    We have now wrestled the right to procreate and marry gay Muslim animals, sit at home watching “The Price is Right” re-runs after purposely giving birth to the new welfare class who don’t work while eating bon bons, steak and lobster dinners and who takes away .000000000000000001% percent of the GDP wealth for commie programs like Social Security and warmonger Military Industrial Complex benefits that crazy PTSD vet types that shoot children in our schools funded from from non-taxed churches that represent Jesus as a man and not a fairy tale who looked out for the poor took away the ‘peaceful’ guns from freedom loving new school King James Bible Christian ‘Mericans while kissing terrorists on the mouth and shrieking for paying those awful teachers what they’re worth.

    We now have a weather making machine that rains upon every single anti-‘women who want to control their own va-gay-gay’ protests.

    Cue the maniacal laugh.
