Oh, how I dream of spending summer weekends at a cabin at a lake! Trouble is, I don't have one. This Canada Day weekend, the lake came to us.
Tuesday, we indeed got the storm predicted for the area. It came with torrents, hail and a tornado watch. The street flooded all the way up to the garage door of the house and into the cars of anyone unlucky enough to have parked in the street. It's not that we don't have storm drains. We have three on this corner alone (which is why the street is graded towards them) but we've had so much water this year (3 to 4 times normal), the drrrains, they canna' take it, Cap'n!! Local farmers are considering changing crops to rice, bamboo, and freshwater algae.
Then came Friday. That's when I took the above picture. And these ones:
You can see one of the eddies.... there's a storm drain these somewhere...
Saturday wasn't too bad. I baked.
