    We have received 15 inches of rain in the last 24 hours. This is my first monsoon season over here. It started raining hard enough for flash flooding right before I left work. I'm glad that I left when I did, or they wouldn't have let me go home. All the streets are flooded and some are now shut down. I'm glad that I left when I did, because I received a call about 15 minutes after getting home to inform me that a landslide just busted through my office. I'm glad that I called it a day when I did. The Taco is a trooper and plowed right through it, even on stock tires. These trucks are capable machines! It makes me wish I had a snorkel to be on the safe side. I'm not comfortable going through deep water with the air intake being at the inner wheel well.

    Perhaps I will someday that works better than the stock location.

    I have pics on my Korean cell phone that I need to figure out how to get them from phone to computer. The monsoon caused a landslide that completely destroyed my office. I was able to salvage a few computers after wading through the water and mud in the building. I'm glad that I have Weather Tech floor liners, however I now wish I would have bought Wet Okoles at least a year ago. I also think I need to lift it at least three inches...and get a snorkel.

    Paid leave? :D

    Lol anyways, glad you made it alright.

    As far as your cellphone goes, maybe use a Bluetooth transfer? Or most phones now a days have the Micro/Mini USB, just get one of those cables and hook it up to your computer. Or get a MicroSD -> SD adapter if you have a card reader.

    We are North of Seoul. There was a civilian population landslide yesterday north of here and it resulted in 32 deaths and 10 are missing.

    I think everyone on post is ok.
