This is Dismaying

Street is river.Water rising rapidly. Garbage cans floating by. Car blocked by floating debris.


UPDATE: rain falling incredibly hard. Water still rising. Storm drains are spewing water.This could be bad. I may swim away from 800 dollars worth of textbooks.  

UPDATE 2: Now that I'm inside and not pecking away at a Blackberry....


This was taken only a block from my parent's  home....it took me 2 additional hours to get there.  

Sadly, I did not get some of the more spectacular visuals as they coincided with excitement in driving. It should be noted that, while in the great scheme of things this was a minor flash flood, it was the first time in the 29 years my folks have lived at their current address that the water rose all the way to their house. Even hurricanes did not get water this high. We got something like 9 inches in 6 hours. It actually flooded the garage, which is currently a bit of a mess.

1 Hopefully you can put them up in the attic or something and the water won't go quite that high.
Failing that, seal 'em into a trash bag, and then put that inside another trash bag.  You probably can skip putting them in a sewage cistern.

3 What, you've decided to stop wishing him bad luck?
