Crisis averted… for the moment.

So it rains for 40 days and 40 nights, and the earth is flooded for 150 days according to Genesis 7. I’m not sure what the overlap was there, but either way, that’s a long time. And that’s not even the end of it. After the ark comes to rest on Mt. Ararat, Noah still waits several months to let everyone off. I get impatient when it rains for more than a day around here! No wonder he is a patriarch.
