The Great Deluge

As in, the Great Flood.

That's what I'm experiencing today anyway. We've had some major flooding here and everything's pretty bad. I was scared out of my mind on the way to work at the school this morning. The rain was coming down so hard, visibility was slim to none. There was so much water on the roads too, above the curb on most roads. That's about 4-5 inches of water covering most of the city streets. I drive an '06 Honda Civic coupe so I'm pretty low to the ground. My car shook a couple of times like it was going to die. I kept mumbling and praying, "Please don't die, please don't die". Luckily I got around fine, but I saw several cars pulled over with their hoods popped open to dry out the engine.

There are firetrucks, city workers, and policemen all over town blocking off intersections.

This is the view coming down the hill from the school. Looks pretty ominous, no?

And this is, um a Baseball Field, not a pond.

I sure am glad I invested in my pair of Sperry's Topsiders for days such as this.
These are mine

But, I'm now in love with these

And these
