At my house it was raining so hard that it was overflowing the gutters. Luckily my house is on piers not a slab so no water came in even though I had to wade through an ankle deep flood to get in my car. At my office water poured into my boss' office from his french doors to his patio (la te da) and it came in around the patio doors to our atrium but that was all we had. I got excited when the power went off but it was only off for about 5 minutes even though the houses around us lost power for the whole day. That was so not fair.
