You know the old saying “when it rains it pours”, and normally rain is not a bad thing but it is if you have a hole in your roof or we get too much of it in a short amount of time. The 20716 area can be great weather most of the time but on occasion we will get that freak monster storm that will just cause carnage to our properties.
