Big government caused the flash flood

Two people died Saturday when a wall of water roared down Main Street in Ellicott City, Maryland.
And the global warming people have come out.
But let's look at the reasons why Ellicott City might have seen climate change.
Sixty years ago, the countryside around Ellicott City was mostly farms.
There was only one high school in the county that now hosts 12.
And multiple schools with trailers outside.
Big government in Washington.
The more people government employs, the more housing that must be built on former farmland and forests.
More housing, more roads, more blacktop for driveways.
If those things increase the temperature and cause bigger storms, then that's the reason for the unusually heavy storm.
Government needs to look at how it's huge footprint around Washington D.C. impacts the climate there.
