Puddle time

Yeah, it’s a weather post.
We had 2.5 inches of rain yesterday,, and most of it fell in a 6-hour period.
Clogged drains did the rest.
It reminded me of the old Bill Cosby “Noah” routine. (That is, the routine is old.)

Sidebar: “Who’s the most important person in the world Rey?” “Cosby!”. (Rey was about 2 or 3 at the time.)

I digress.
Driving yesterday was a windshield wiped tester, and hang on to the wheel going through the lakes that formed along the margins of most roads.
Here is the road adjacent to the Church of Baseball field.

2-inches of rain = floating cars

Luckily, Carl and friends had opted for an indoor cage on the slightly less rainy Sunday.

This morning has dawned with only scattered clouds, although rain is predicted for the afternoon commute.
Get your T-day shopping done now.

Thanksgiving has a tradition of being a bad weather week around here. The paper generally has directions for alternative cooking methods, and do Not bring the grill inside the house.

    That’s a LOT of water. We didn’t see the flooding as much down here. Hoping for calmer weather and no power outages.

    “Do not drive into water.” That was the sign here on a road that paralleled a creek. At one point, when the kids were in Daycare, I used that road to pick them up. Flooding required a major detour, but I saw the stranded cars, and went the long way around.
