Hi -

This isn't particularly detailed as far as whether particular 
neighborhoods and whatnot are flooded, but it does show recent river 
level data for flooding:

I'd assume that the river flooding and not the storm/sewer backup is 
probably the most problematic.  That said, flooding is another valid 
reason to like non ground floor or garden units :-)

OTOH, I don't recall anything this extensive in the 7 years I've been here.

I'm new to the list. I've been playing with Python on and off for a bit, 
but have now started using it in as many projects as I can.  I thought 
it might be nice to connect with some other local pythonistas (I suppose 
that's the correct term).
