Hey Ladies, How Would You Like 17 Inches…

…of rain…

…in ninety minutes.

Yeah, probably not.  Anyway, everyone knows that after the first six or seven inches of rain, the rest is just for show.

That’s exactly what happened to the island of Sardinia, Italy on Monday night.  For reference, Sardinia normally gets 17 inches in half a year.  This much rain obviously caused apocalyptic flooding and killed at least 16 people.

In still horrible, but slightly more amusing news because of its incongruity, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia got 0.79 inches of rain in a 12 hour span.  This also caused massive flooding that killed 4 people.  That 0.79 inches is double what Riyadh normally gets in November.
